In the early centuries, Conn Céad Cathach fought a battle against Owen Mór, King of Ireland at Cloch Barraige. Owen was badly injured . Those of his followers who survived took him to Inis Greaghraighe (now known as Bere Island) as a safe place for him to recover. There, the fairy Eadaoin took him to her grianán where she nursed him back to full health. Nowadays, this place is known as Greenane. Owen and his followers then sailed southwards until they reached Spain. There he met and married Beara, daughter of the King of Castille.
