* Ciarraige Aoi, [[Ciarraige Airtig|Ciarraí Airtigh]] agus [[Ciarraige Locha na nÁirne|Ciarraí Locha na nAirní]], suite ó thuaidh, in aice a chéile in oirthear [[Contae Mhaigh Eo|Mhaigh Eo]] agus iarthar [[Contae Ros Comáin|Ros Comáin]]. Meastar go raibh tuath abhainn acu téimh thrácht chun cinn [[Uí Bhriúin]] sna 8ú agus 9ú haoiseanna.
 
Meastar gurbh iad Ciarraí Aoi, lonnaithe ar [[Maigh Aoí]], an dream is suntasaí acu. Bhíodh príomhráth ársa an chúige, [[Ráth Cruachan]], suite lastighlaistigh a gcuid críoch.<ref>[[Nollaig Ó Muraíle]], 2000, lch.&nbsp;165</ref><!--
:''"The most notable of the latter are Ciarraige Aí, also called Ciarraige Maige Aí, who obviously derive their designation from the great central plain of Roscommon, Mag nAí, in which the ancient 'capital' of Connacht, Cruachu, stood. Their settlement in contiguity to such a significant royal site must surely bespeak their possessing a considerable status at some stage just over the historical horizon. They first appear in the annals towards the close of the eighth century when, in 796, the [[Annála Uladh]] record the death of Duinechaid ua Daire, whom it describes as 'dux Ciarraide'; this is expanded by the Ceithre Máistrí to 'tighearna Ciarraighe Aí' and the latter also tells of the death in the same year of Fogartach mac Cathail who is termed 'tighearna Maighe Aí' ... The title used by the Ceithre Máistrí ('tiarna Mag nAí') is indicative of the struggle for control of this crucial territory between the Ciarraige of the area and the rising dynastic power of the [[Uí Bhriúin]]."-->
