Aedh Mac Ainmerech (566 - 593):
King of the Northern Ui Neill
Aedh was king of the Northern Ui Neill. He called a convention at Dromkett, near Limavady which had a three-fold aim: to attempt to curtail the activity of the bards, to impose a heavier tribute on Scottish Dalriada, and to depose the King of Ossory. St Columcille came from Iona to the convention. King Aedh fell at the Battle of Dunbolg.
