He was Turloch O’Connor’s chief rival, and Leinster joined him from the south. Here Dermot (Diarmait) MacMurrough, great-grandson of the first Dermot, came into the kingdom of Leinster about 1126. In that year, in a vacancy, the High king Turloch imposed his son Conor upon Leinster, but Dermot asserted his claim and expelled the Connacht prince. Henceforth he was enemy to O’Connor and friend to MacLochlann. This bad man was to be the ultimate cause of the loss of Ireland’s independence. Among other princes of the time we may note Donnchad O’Cervall, king of Oriel, a patron of Church reform, who gave the land for Mellifont; Murchad O’Melaghlin, last king of undivided Meath; and Tiernan O’Ruairc, lord of Brefni.

In this new form the book provided for the claim of Munster, Leinster, Ulster, and Meath to enjoy the High kingship, but not Connacht, which by ancient tradition was part of the old Meath-Connacht kingdom. Again, Brian’s edition increased the King of Cashel’s power in his own province: he was to have the military service of the Gaels of Dublin and Ireland and, if he were not King of Erin, to be King of Mogh’s half.

He was then succeeded as High king by Luguid, and he again, according to their compact, by Murchertach in 509. The royal succession was thus recovered for Niall’s line, and Diarmait, great-grandson of Niall, is the first High king who can be called a christian (544–565). But meanwhile Connacht had found a king of its own in the line of Brion, another brother of Niall. In short, the connexion of the Connacht-Meath kingdom was severed finally by the battle of Ocha.
