He came to power by killing the incumbent High King, Eochu Mumu , who had killed his father twenty-one years earlier. He fought many battles against the Cruithne , the Fir Bolg , the Fomorians and other peoples of Ireland, the people of the Orkney islands, and even the Longobardi. He was killed by Enna Airgdech , son of Eochu Mumu, in the battle of Carman. Geoffrey Keating , who interprets his epithet as meaning "great hogs", dates his reign to 1050-1032 BC, the Annals of the Four Masters to 1428-1410 BC..[1][2][3]
