999 – Battle of Glenn Máma

In county Kildare, Ireland, Brian Boru and the High King Máel Sechnaill II fought Máel Mórda of Leinster and Sigtrygg Silkbeard. Máel Mórda of Leinster and Sigtrygg lost and had to submit to the victors.

There is a fine long article about the battle on the Ardclough Community Council site.
