(time-frame ass. with Ailill Ólomm, Éogan Mór mac Ailella)
son of Ailill Ólomm and brother of Éogan, the eponymous ancestor of the Éoganachta. His appearance in the sources or that of his epithet Cas(s) has been related to the rise of the Dál Cais in the tenth century at the expense of the Éoganachta: by grafting an ancestor of their own to the Éoganacht genealogy, it sought to bolster rival claims to the kingship of Munster.
