>From the Book of Ballymote:
"Cuic mc. la Feidlimid .r. {68b} .i. Conn .c.c. o raiter Leith Cuind, & Cael a quo Caelraighe & Crinda & Croisine & Eochu find fuath nairt, no fuath nandhea & is uadh Fotharta & Fiacha suighe a quo na Desi & Fiacha raidhe a quo Corca Raidhe."

Dal Fiachach Suighe descend from a brother of Conn of a hundred battles. They settle in Tipperary (i.e. of the Dessi), yet others the Corca Raidhe the progeny of Fiacha Raidhe mac Fiacha Suighdhe have the barony of Corkaree, Co. Westmeath named for them. This is within the realm of Cenel Fiachach mac Neill.

(The tale of "The Explusion of the Dessi", tells of Dal Fiachach Suighe loss of power.)
