Sa Rúraíocht i miotaseolaíocht na nGael, ba gaisce na nUladh é Dubhthach (Sean-Ghaeilge Dubthach Dóeltenga (ciaróg-theanga)).

Ba chomhghuaillí searbhasach Fheargasa Mhic Róich é nár mhol duine ar bith ach go hannamh.

Chuaigh sé i dteannta le Fearghas chun Deirdre agus Naoise a ar ais go hÉirinn faoi réir Chonchúir. Lean sé Feargha ar deoraíocht go Connacht tar éis dúnmharú Naoise.

Ba chiontach é le bás mhac Chonchúir, i measc eile.[1]

Throid sé ar thaobh Fhearghasa sa Táin Bó Cuailnge, cé gur chuir Fearghas an ruaig air as an gcampa, de bhárr a rúin chun Cú Chulainn a mharú.[2]
