To the treasurer of Cloyne (Clonen.), Maurice Canto(n), a canon of the same, and the official of the same. Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that the perpetual vicarages of the parish churches of Mathethe and Eluenyryhyny (recte Cluenyryhyny), (fn. 3) in the diocese of Cloyne, have been so long void that their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, and that there is no certain knowledge of the mode of voidance of the said vicarage of Mathethe. And the recent petition of Charles (fn. 4) alijacenfaelay otuama (? recte Macenfaelay otuama), priest, of the diocese of Ardfert, contained that the fruits etc. of the said vicarage of Mathethe are too slight for the maintenance of the vicar of the said churches, (fn. 5) and that if the said vicarage of Cluenyryhyny, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, were united for his life to that of Mathethe, value not exceeding 5 marks sterling, he could maintain himself, that they are so near together that they can be served by one man, and that John, archbishop of Cashel, the metropolitan, lately made collation and provision to him of the said vicarage of Mathethe by his ordinary authority, and that in virtue thereof he obtained possession, but, after receiving part of its fruits for about a year in good faith, has resigned it. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three to collate and assign the said vicarage of Mathethe to the said Charles, and to unite thereto that of Clueny[ry]hyny for his life.

To the abbot of Holy Trinity, Annaghdown (de Cellaparva), in the diocese of Annaghdown (Enachdunen.). Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that the perpetual vicarages of the parish churches of Balydiuclan and Furoanmor in the diocese of Annaghdown have been void so long that their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Odo Ykallanain, priest, of the said diocese, has detained possession of them for between six and seven years without any title. And the recent petition of Maurus Okanelud, dean of Annaghdown, contained that after Martin V and Eugenius IV had renewed all sentences of excommunication etc. by former popes against simoniacs, and after Paul II had aggravated the same, the said Maurus, wishing to buy off (fn. 12) certain vexations and molestations which were being inflicted on him by Dermit Ohalluran, priest, of the said diocese, before a certain judge, about the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Machulid in the said diocese, canonically annexed to the said deanery, gave and paid a sum of money to the said Dermit, in order that he should acquiesce in the sentence to be delivered, thereby incurring simony and the said censures etc.; and that, when under the said sentences, etc., he took part in divine offices, but not in contempt of the Keys. At the petition, therefore, of the said Maurus, who alleges that the said vicarages were united for the lifetime of their holder, the pope hereby orders the above abbot to absolve the said Maurus (who was lately dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders, and receive and retain any compatible benefices, of any number and kind, with or without cure, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased, in virtue of which he obtained and holds the said deanery, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, collated to him by the said authority), from the guilt of simony and from the said sentences etc., enjoining a salutary penance, etc., dispense him on account of irregularity incurred, and rehabilitate him, and in the event of his so doing, to summon the said Odo and others concerned, unite the said vicarages, value not exceeding 8 marks sterling, for the lifetime of the said Maurus, and collate and assign them to him, removing the said Odo. The pope dispenses him to receive them and retain with them for life the said deanery, or without them any two other benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if parish churches or perpetual vicarages, or dignities etc., and resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases.
