Sealbhach, son of Ferdorcha, son of Con Bacagh, son of Con, son of Toirdhealbhach, son of Maolseachlainn, who had been Lord Palatine from the death of his father to the year when the celebrated Parliament was held in Sliabh Lugha and who was styled Lord Palatine at that Parliament, and who was afterwards styled Sealbhach the Great, Lord of Gaileanga, died at an advanced age, after having passed his life in prosperity and happiness, in valiant and illustrious achievements, in honour and nobleness.
The place at which he died was Airteach Mór, and his death occurred on the 30th of August, after exemplary penance for his sins, and gaining the victory over the world and the Devil.
The person who here died was a powerful, mighty lord, endowed with wisdom, subtlety, and profundity of mind and intellect; a warlike, valorous, predatory, enterprising lord, in defending his religion and his patrimony against his enemies.
A pious and charitable lord, mild and gentle with his friends, fierce and stern towards his enemies, until he had brought them to submission and obedience to his authority.
A lord who had not coveted to possess himself of the illegal or excessive property of any other, except such as had been hereditary in his ancestors from a remote period; a lord with the authority and praiseworthy characteristics of a prince, who had not suffered theft or robbery, abduction or rapine, spite or animosity, to prevail during his reign; but had kept all under the authority of the law, as was meet for a prince.
