Slainge Landed at Inber Slaine with a thousand men on Saturday in August. He received the portion of Ireland from Inber Colptha to Comar Tri nUisce. He was of the Fir Gailioin who were thus called because of their javelins and darts they carried. Slainge was the eldest of the five brothers who first landed in Ireland. He ruled in Leinster for one year before he died at Druim Fuar which was renamed Dumha Slaine as he was buried there. He is credited with inventing festivals in Ireland according to Fintan the wise in the 'Hawk of Achill' below.
