Slatady, County Down
Ir. Sleacht Aidí ‘Aidí’s memorial cairn or grave mound’
Aidídh (Modern Irish Aidí) was the father of the Aonghas from whom the family of Magennis (Mac Aonghasa ) is named. A district in Kilcoo in south Down was named Muntereddy (Muintir Aidídh ‘Aidí’s people’) and the family of Ó hAidí or ‘Haidy/Haddy’ were lords of Uí Eachach, now the barony of Iveagh, from the 10th to the mid-12th century, before the Magennises took control (PNI iii 101n, vi 7,14).
