Author's Attitude mourns the slaughter of so great an army as O Neill had assembled but admires both O Domhnaill's stealth in his attack on O Neill's camp and that O Domhnaill and the Cenel Conaill attacked O Neill and his army 'of one accord, without help of neighbour or friend' - AC, 1522, p. 643, par. 7
