hosting to provision a castle The people from Connacht north of the Curlieus expected that the men of Clanrickard would help them provision the castle but only Mac William with a small body of horse came as far as Ballintober to meet them - (AC, 1409, p. 405, par. 7). Thus the hosting army came close to retreating but Conchobhar mac Donnchada, king of Tirerrill refused to leave until he had provisioned the castle or perished doing so.
