The DÃ¡irine (DÃ¡rine, DÃ¡irfine, DÃ¡irfhine, DÃ¡rfine, DÃ¡rinne, Dairinne), later known dynastically as the Corcu LoÃgde, were the proto-historical rulers of Munster before the rise of the EÃ³ganachta in the 7th century AD. They appear to have derived from the Darini of Ptolemy and to have been related to the Ulaid and DÃ¡l Riata of Ulster and Scotland. In support of this, their ancestors appear frequently in the Ulster Cycle, where they are known as the Clanna Dedad, and are the killers of CÃº Chulainn. All are considered Ã‰rainn (see also O''Rahilly''s historical model). In historical times the DÃ¡irine were represented, as stated, by the Corcu LoÃgde, and probably by the UÃ Fidgenti and UÃ LiathÃ¡in, as well as a few other early historical kindreds of both Munster and Ulster. In ancient genealogical schemes, the historical DÃ¡l Fiatach of Ulaid also belong to the DÃ¡irine (Clanna Dedad). DÃ¡irine can sometimes refer to the Ã‰rainn dynasties as a whole instead of the distinct royal septs mentioned above.
