Fedlim Ó Conchobair
|Feidlim Ó Conchobair|
|King of Connacht|
|Reign||1310 – 10 August 1316|
|Predecessor||Ruaidri Ó Conchobair|
|Successor||Rory na-bhFeadh mac Donough Ua Conchobair|
10 August 1316|
Athenry, Connacht, Ireland
|House||Ó Conchubhair Ruadh|
|Father||Aedh, King of Connacht|
His father, Aedh Ó Conchobair, was killed in battle at Coill an Clochain by Aed Breifnech Ua Conchobair. His place was taken by Ruaidri mac Cathal Ua Conchobair who nevertheless ruled for less than a year; the annals laconically note in 1310 that Felim, the son of Hugh, son of Owen O'Conor, assumed the place of his father.
Felim was killed at the Second Battle of Athenry at the head of a massive Irish army thought to comprise at least two and a half thousand men, mainly from Connacht, with allies from the midlands and Ulster. A son, Aedh mac Felim Ó Conchobair, would later become King of Connacht, as would his grandson, Tairdelbach mac Aedh Ua Conchobair.
