He likewise built seven royal palaces, viz., Rath Ciombaoith, Rath Coincheada, Rath Mothuig, Rath Buirioch, Rath Luachat, Path Croicne, and Rath Boachoill. He won four remarkable battles over his enernies: — Ard Inmath, at Teabtha, wbere Stirne, the son of Dubh, son of Fomhar, was slain; the second battle was at Teanmhuighe, agminst the Fomhoraice, where Eichtghe, their leader, was slain ; the third was the battle of Loch Muighe, where Lugrot, the son of Moghfeibhis, was slain ; and the fourth was the battle of Cuill Martho, where the four sons of Heber were defeated.
