Hiȝ Kiŋ and full Kiŋ of Ireland[edit | edit source]

Upon ꝧ deaþ of Hiȝ Kiŋ Muirchertach V of Ireland in early GÆ 1166, Ruairí rode to Dublin hƿere he ƿas affixed as Kiŋ of Ireland ƿiðute ƿiþſtandands. He ƿas full kiŋ over ꝧ iland of Ireland noƿ beoned as a hƿole, but at ꝧ ſame time, he ƿas ſtill hiȝ kiŋ over ꝧ reſt of ꝧ kiŋs on ꝧ iland, all of ƿhom ƿere beloƿ him in rink. He ƿas mootly ꝧ erſt-ever unbickered full kiŋ of Ireland as ƿell as ꝧ only Gelish one, as ꝧ haps of ꝧ Normaniſh raid of GÆ 1169 þrouȝ 1171 brouȝt about ꝧ ſhattering of ꝧ hiȝ-kiŋſhip, and ꝧ ðorouȝ hƿelmiŋ of ꝧ Kiŋs of Eŋland in Iriſh gereck.

Folloƿiŋ his affixiŋ, one of Ruairí's erſt bedoings as kiŋ ƿas ꝧ beating down of Liȝenſted, ƿhich edsprung in ꝧ wraxlie of its kiŋ, Diarmait III. Ruairí ðen thedged friſts and yiſles from all ꝧ loggable kiŋs and lords. And after ðat he frealsed Oneach Tailltann, a beknowledged ſunderyift of ꝧ Hiȝ Kiŋs, in ƿhich he made a rime of chiſty outyivings and yifts. Hoƿever, his headſeat belived in his home ledemark in middle Hundlingen (County Galƿay). Ireland's acknowledged headſtead, Dublin, ƿas reded by Ascall mac Ragnaill, ƿho had underwilled to Ruairí.

Only ƿiþ ꝧ coming if Mac Murchada's Aŋle-Normaniſh ifolk in Merrymonth GÆ 1169 did Ruairí's ſteadholding begin to ƿeaken. A ſay of deadly drubbings and ill-deemed griþƿrits loſt him much of Liȝenſted, and bolſtered uprisiŋs by ƿiðercor lords. By ðeð time of ꝧ coming of Kiŋ Hamrich II of Eŋland in 1171, Ruairí's berþ as kiŋ of Ireland ƿas upriſingly unupholſome.

Children and afterkinds[edit | edit source]

Ꝧ laſt of Ruairí's afterkinds to hold ꝧ kiŋſhip of Hundlingen, Aed mac Ruaidrí Ua Conchobair, II, died in GÆ 1233. Ꝧ Aþsels of Hundliŋen yive ꝧ folloƿiŋ inþiŋ for ðis:

Aed mac Ruaidri had been five years Kiŋ of Hundlingen, as ꝧ ſhope ſaid: 'Aed mac Ruaidri of ꝧ ſƿift onſlauȝt, five years of his rede over ꝧ landſhip, till he fell-- a loſs of every mire-- by ꝧ hand of Fedlimid.' Here ends ꝧ rede of ꝧ children of Ruaidri O Conchobair, Kiŋ of Ireland. For ꝧ Holy Faðer offered him ꝧ heading to [ꝧ kiŋſhip of Ireland] for hisſelf and his ſeed for ever, and likeƿise ſix ƿives, if he ƿould aſake ꝧ ſin of lair henceforþſ and ſince he ƿould not intake ðese friſts God took ꝧ rede and uttoverredeſhip from his ſeed for ever, in wittening for his ſin.
