    Bryan Boru or Brian Boru as he was more commonly known was born in Killaloe in the year 941 or thereabouts. The son of Cennétig mac Lorcain and Bé Binn inion Urchadh, his family belonged to the Dal gCais Clan based in the province of Munster. Throughout his entire life Brian Boru struggled with the Vikings. After his brother Mahon was killed by Viking forces in the year 978, Bryan became the head of the Dal gCais and King of Munster.

    As the Dalcassians and Brian Boru (Bryan Boru) were growing in power in the South of Ireland, his rival Mael Sechnaill mac Domnaill, High King of Ireland was gaining power in the North. In the year 1002, Mael Sechnaill succumbed to the powerful Brian Boru, thus making Brian Boru High King of Ireland.

    For a short time after his initial reign as High King of Ireland, Brian Boru’s enemies subjected to his rule, but this was to be short lived. The King of Leinster Mael Morda allied himself with Sigtrygg Silkbeard the Norse King of Dublin and grew an army to fight against Bryan Boru and his following. Both sides collided on Good Friday morning in Clontarf in the year 1014. The Battle was fierce and savage with more than 10,000 men killed on that day. Brian Boru and his allies won the battle but Brian paid greatly with his life.
