32nd Christian King of Meath and 169th Monarch of Ireland.
As monarch of Ireland this king of Meath succeeded Aidus Finliath (a quo
Finlay). In Flan's reign Cormac MacCullinan was Archbishop of Cashel and King
of Munster. Flan, for some cause, waged war on Cormac MacCullinan; who, in the
field of battle, was killed by falling under his horse, which missed its
footing on a bank, slippery with the blood of the slain.
