Ulaid at AllExperts (672 words)
The Ulaid or Ulaidh (singular Ulad or Uladh) were a people of Early Ireland who gave their name to the Irish Province of Ulster.
Their territory at its height extended as far south as the River Boyne and as far west as County Leitrim, but by early Christian times they were pressed by the northern Uí Néill and they were reduced to eastern County Down, where they became known as the Dál Fiatach and the Dál nAraide.
According to the Annals of the Four Masters, the reduction of the Ulaid began in AD 331, when the Three Collas defeated their king Fergus Foga in the Battle of Achadh Leithdheirg in County Monaghan.
