Scaipeadh iad sa 13 céad agus fuair cuid acu dídean i dTír Conaill mar scríobhaithe ag na Domhnallaigh. Is mar sin a bhí siad páirteach in Annála Ríocht Éireann. Tháinig an sloinne i bhfeidhm i lár an 10 céad - an ceann ba luaithe sa tír, ceaptar. Tá an sloinne Sasanach Clarke ann, leis, ach tuairimíonn Mac Giolla Iasachta gur lú iad ná na cinn dúchasacha.IF.
