  • fl. early 7th century
Irish bishop, a son of Áed, king of Leinster, and brother of Crimthann, king of Leinster (ob. 633). According to the genealogies, he is the great-grandfather of Cellach Cúalann (ob. 715), hence an ancestor of the Uí Chellaig Cúalann. The king of Leinster of the same name in the tale Fingal Rónáin may have been based on him, or his brother, but similar suggestions have been made in favour of Rónán mac Colmáin.
  • supp. fl. 6th/7th century
King of Leinster in the early Irish tale Fingal Rónáin, which tells how he had his son put to death for alleged sexual assaults on the king’s young wife (the son’s stepmother). It has been suggested that he was ultimately based on Rónán mac Colmáin, king of Leinster from the Uí Dúnlainge (e.g. by David Greene), or alternatively, on Rónán mac Áeda of the Uí Máil, bishop and brother of the king of Leinster.
