He married Mor ingen Muirchertaig Ua Tauthail, daughter of Mouirchertach O'Toole King Ui Muiredaig andCacht O'Morda ingen Loigsig.

Notes
It has often been suggested that Diarmait Mac Murchada (Dermot MacMurrough) earned the sobriquet "Diarmait na nGall" (Dermot of the Foreigners) from the fact that he entered a military alliance with, and gave his daughter Aífe in marriage to, Richard de Clare (Strongbow), but it is more probable that the cognomen refers to the fact that he asserted control over the Hiberno-Norse kingdom of Dublin. Despite his negative posthumous reputation as the catalyst for Norman rule in Ireland, Diarmait was roundly praised by contemporary accounts as a great patron of church reform, having endowed the Cistercian abbey of Baltinglass. This act moved St. Bernard of Clairvaux to write a letter of commendation to Diarmait.
