Rudraige arrived in Ireland on a Friday with his brother Genann, they landed in Inber Domnann which was named after their tribe.  They were called Fir Domnann because of the furrows they made in the earth.  (They may have been arable farmers who planted crops).  Rudraige took the province of Ulster as his share of Ireland and went there to rule with two thousand in his retinue.  After only two years in the kingship, Rudraige died in Brug Bratruad ('The Hostel of the Red Cloak').
