    The fall of Cennetig mac Lorcain in 951 AD in a battle against the High King of Eirinn, Congalach Cnogba, began the succession of three of Cennetig's sons to thrones. Latchna followed his father as King of Thomond and less than three years later, Mathgamain mac Cennetig assumed the throne when Latchna was killed. Mathgamain and his brother, Brian, defeated Ivar of Limerick in 967 AD in the Battle of Sulcoit and Mathgamain took the title, King of Cashel.
