The Danes left their mark in Aidhne with the following incursions;
In 816 A.D. Corcomroe was raided. Glen Columkille and Oughtmama suffered and the northmen went through Aidhne to Oranmore and Loughcorrib. After the plundering of inis Cealtra the marauding vikings used the island as a base from which they plundered the church of Beagh. In 843 the warrior Turgesius, operating from Loughrea sought to establish his authority in Connacht.

The following year the Danes landed at Kinvara and proceeded in their woeful way by Kilmacduagh to Clare.
