He was expelled from his possessions by the Lochlans and the Fingalls, took refuge in Ireland, where he persuaded the descendants of Colla to espouse his quarrel and assist him in an attempt to recover his possessions.

Gille Bride (Giolla Brighid), son of Gille Adomanan. Gille Bride traveled to Ireland to seek help in expelling the Norse from his ancestral lands. He was the claimant of Argyll . Gille Bride had two (2) sons :

       * Somerled
       * Dubhghall, was the King of the Isles, d. living in 1144. (Dubhghall is Irish for a black foreigner) He was the ancestor of the MacDougall, MacDougald, MacDowell and MacDowall families.

Notes Gille Bride proceeded with [a party of his Irish kindred] to Scotland, where they landed. They made frequent onsets and attacks on their enemies during their time of trouble, for their enemies were powerful and numerous at that time. All the islands from Man to the Orkneys, and all the borderland, from Dumbarton to Caithness in the north, were in the possession of the Danes (Norse); and such of the Gael of those lands as remained were protecting themselves in the woods and mountains, and at the end of that time Gille Bride had a good son, who had come to maturity and reknown." (Book of Clanranald, Reliquiae Celticae) This son was Sumarlidi Hèold, or Somerled. Gilbride had returned to Ireland to ask for help in winning back his inheritance.
