He was the son of Mal, a High King of Ireland and a descendant of hero Conall Cernach.

Dál nAraidi or Dál Araide was a Cruthin kingdom, or possibly a confederation of Cruthin tribes, in north-eastern Ireland during the Middle Ages. It was part of the over-kingdom of Ulaid, and its kings often contended with the Dál Fiatach for the over-kingship of the province. At its greatest extent, the borders of Dál nAraidi roughly match those of County Antrim, and they seem to occupy the same area as the earlier Robogdii of Ptolemy's Geography, a region shared with Dál Riata. Their capital was Ráth Mór outside Antrim, and their eponymous ancestor is claimed as being Fiachu Araide.

The chronology of Geoffrey Keating's Foras Feasa ar Éirinn dates his reign to 100–104, that of the Annals of the Four Masters to 106–110. His son was Tipraiti Tireach
The Lebor Gabála and the Annals say Tipraiti Tireach defeated and slew Conn of the Hundred Battles, the High King of Ireland for thirty-five years, at the Battle of Tuath Amrois. Keating says Tipraiti sent fifty warriors dressed as women from Emain Macha to kill him at Tara.
