Here's a little more documentation on the Ciannacta of L'Derry Co. if anyone
is interested. There is a pedigree for them in Rawlinson B.502 (c. 1120 AD)
- CIANNACHTA GLINNI GAIMEN.
GENELACH CIANNACHTA GLINNI GAIMEN.

A few annal entries also pertain to the Ciannachta of Glen Gaimhin.
# M1022, Domhnall, grandson of Murchadh Glunillar, lord of the North, was
slain by the Cianachta of Gleann-Geimhin.
# M1023, Lochlainn, son of Maeleachlainn, lord of Inis-Eoghain and
Magh-Itha, was slain by his own brother, Niall, and the Cianachta of Gleann-Geimhin.
# LC1094, Conchobhar O'Conchobhair, king of Cianachta, in poenitentia
# M1095, Ua Conchobhair, lord of Cianachta-Glinne-Geimhin, was slain.
# M1096, Conchobhar Ua hAinniarraidh, lord of Cianachta, and Ua Cein, lord
of Ui-Mic-Cairthinn, fell by each other in a combat. (Ulster?)
# LC1100, Echri Ua Maelmuire, king of Cianachta, was slain by Ua Conchobhair
of Cianachta-Glinne -Geimhin.
# LC1104, Donnchadh Ua Conchobhair, King of Cianachta, was slain by his own
# M1121, Gilla-Easbuig Eoghain Ua hAinniarraidh, lord of
Cianachta-Glinne-Geimhin, was killed by his brothers.
Ua Cein, lord of Ui-Mic-Cairthinn, is an interesting reference (1096). The
Ui Mic Cairthain were Airgialla, a branch of the northern Ui Meic Uais, and
they are specifically the tribe called of Loch Foyle in Rawlinson. Loch
Foyle is the lough dividing the Inishowen peninsula of Donegal from L'Derry Co.
Here Ui Mic Cairthain is probably a territorial reference although one can't
rule out the possibility that Ua Cein was actually a member of this tribe.
And the suddenly we have this in the annals:
M1138, Raghnall, son of Imhar Ua Cathain, lord of the Craebh, Cianachta, and
Fir-Li, fell through treachery and guile, by the Ui-Eoghain of the Valley.
The Cianachta grow more mysterious by the moment.
