Bárid mac Oitir
Bárid mac Oitir is mentioned once in contemporary Irish annals. The Annals of Ulster in 914 record:
|“||A naval battle off the Isle of Man between Bárid son of Oitir and Ragnall grandson of Ímar, in which Bárid and nearly all of his army were destroyed.||”|
This incident is the earliest known occasion where vikings are linked with Man.
- The definition as given by Downham is used here – Vikings were "people of Scandinavian culture who were active outside of Scandinavia".
