|To the abbot of Abbeygormacan (de Via nova) and the prior of the monastery of Clontuasgerta Omane, wont to be governed by a prior, in the diocese of Clonfert, and the official of Clonfert. Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Rilconeecehne [sic] in the diocese of Clonfert has been so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Eugene Offathi, who behaves as prior of the monastery of St. Mary, Achdraym Omane, O.S.A., in the said diocese, has without any title detained possession of it for some years. And the pope has been informed by Theobald de Burgo, a canon of Clonfert (Clotferten. [sic]), that Maurice Otressay, a canon of Clonfert (Clotferten.), when under sentence of excommunication, of which he was not ignorant, has taken part in divine offices in contempt of the Keys, thereby contracting irregularity, that he has dilapidated and turned to his own evil purposes (fn. 2) the precious movable goods of the prebend called the prebend of Kilteskyll in the church of Clonfert, and of the rectory of the parish church of Dundayre in the said diocese, which is of lay patronage, and is annexed for his lifetime to his said canonry and prebend, and has not served the said rectory by himself or by a vicar, although often monished by the ordinary. At the petition, therefore, of the said Theobald, who alleges that he is of a great race of nobles, the pope hereby orders the above three, if he will accuse the said Maurice before them, to summon the latter, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to deprive and remove him from the said prebend, and in that event to summon the said Eugene, and collate and assign the said vicarage and prebend to the said Theobald, and, with consent of the patrons, unite and appropriate the said rectory, and also the said vicarage, to the said prebend, yearly values not exceeding 20, 6, and 3 marks sterling, respectively, for as long as he shall hold the latter, inducting him, and removing the said Maurice from the said prebend, and rectory, and the said Eugene from the said vicarage. Apostolice sedis providentia circumspecta. [6¼ pp.]|

|To the dean of Killala (Aladen.), and John Odonnagan and Murianus Mackyllechan, canons of the same. Mandate to collate and assign to Rory Omalle, priest, of the diocese of Killala, the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Ymlechaissell in the said diocese, yearly value not exceeding 6 marks sterling, so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see although Maurice Odubda, clerk, of the said diocese, who is to be summoned and removed, has detained possession of it for some years without any title, at least canonical, and without any right.

|To the abbots of the monasteries of Abbeygormacan and Clonfert (de Via nova et de Portu puro), in the diocese of Clonfert, and Cornelius Okyny, a canon of Clonfert. Mandate to collate and assign to Cornelius Olorcayn, priest, of the diocese of Clonfert, the sacristship of the church of Clonfert, an office with cure, the yearly value of which and of its annexed canonry and the prebend, called the prebend of Clonarta alias de Cocallmor, does not exceed 4 marks sterling, so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Donatus Olorcayn, priest, of the said diocese, who is to be summoned and removed, has without any canonical title detained possession of it for some years; whether they find it to be void by the death of John Ylorcann extra R.c., or by his resignation, or howsoever they find it to be void. Vite etc. (Gratis de mandato.) [3 pp. In the margin at the end: ‘Fe (bruarii).’]|
