Muirenn ingen Dúnadaig (pronounced MURE-in IN-yen DUNE-a-dayg) joined the SCA in 2009, and divides her interest between the early/middle Irish period (up to 1000 AD) and the High Middle Ages on the continent (late 1100's), specifically the history surrounding Eleanor of Aquitane. She resides in the East Kingdom in Concordia of the Snows, with frequent disregard of the borders between there, Anglespur, and Glenn Linn.

Her major interests are Heraldry (names and research) and the bardic arts (voice and performance.) Hobbies that loom on the horizon are naalbinding, herbalism, tablet weaving, and her harp.


Ireland in approximately 800AD

Muirenn lived in Ireland in the [2] from 802 - 841, at a time when the [3] Viking raids were just beginning. Iona had been burned and sacked, and there was raiding all along the coasts, but the Vikings had no permanent settlements.

[4] Áed Oirdnide (793-819) was High King of Ireland when Muirenn was born , but [5] Concochobar mac Donnchad (819-833) was High King during most of Muirenn's lifetime , followed by [6] Niall Caille (833-846.)

The kings of Munster during her time were:

  • Artrí mac Cathail (793-820)[7]
  • Feidlimid mac Cremthanin (820-846) [8]

Muirenn lived in the kingdom of Munster in [9] Corcu Duibne lands in what is now Kerry. As a peninsula along the southwestern coast, these lands were subject to frequent raids during Muirenn's lifetime. The Corcu Duibne trace their ancestry back to [10] Conaire Mor, and they claim Dob(h)inia as their devine ancestor. The [11] Cailleach Bheirre is of the Corcu Duibne as well.

Christianity was well-established, the [12]Abbey of Kells was under construction, and Muirenn was torn between a fascination with the faith of the Christians and her family's waning traditional pagan beliefs.
