  • Notes 
    • Cuach, daughter of Coulub, etc., of the Ui Bairrche of Mach Ailbe, was mother of Dunlang's three sons: Illann, Ailill, Eochaid. Hence was said "Cuach's three leaps in Gabair" each time she bore one of the afforesaid sons. Three forts were given her after them viz.: Magen (Daingen) Garbain, Achad Dairig, Tilach Ui mBlait. She granted those three forts to her brother, Coeman Santlethan (Airne). These sites can no longer be identified but were in Gabair.

      Cuach's family may be the same as the "hU Cellaig do hUib Briuin doib, hU (C)ellaig i mmaigh o chenel nUcha la hI Bairrche." It is worth noting that the Ui Bairrchi and the Ui Dunlainge were not far from the district where tradition placed Palladius' mission and the first landing of St. Patrick. The story of Ciaram of Saighir asserts there were Christians in Ossory before Patrick. Cuach and Coeman may represent these earliest converts. Her sons apparently were not baptized till middle life.
