Sitric Cáech died in AD 927 and was succeeded by Gofraid ua Ímair as king of York but Gofraid was expelled in the same year by king Æthelstan of England and he retreated back to Dublin. In 934, Gofraid ua Ímair died and was succeeded by his son, Anlaf Guthfrithsson. In 939, following the death of Aethelstan, the Vikings under Anlaf Guthfrithsson (a son of Gofraid ua Ímair), re-occupied York.
