His death is noted in the Annals of Lough Ce:

'Muirghes Cananach, son of Ruaidhri O'Conchobhair, the most expert man that ever came of the Gaeidhel in reading, and in psalm-singing, and in versemaking, died in this year, and was interred in Cunga-Feichin (Cong), after the triumph of unction and penitence.
