    Abstract:
    In 1247, in conflict with English forces, a man described as MacSomhairle, King of Argyll, was slain at Ballyshannon in Donegal. This paper seeks to identify which member of the kindred descend from Somerled this was and to investigate the context of his intervention in Irish politics.
