To the dean of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.). Decree etc. as below. It was set forth to Nicholas V by Dermit Ymaguaid, priest, [of the diocese of] Kilmacduagh, that a dispute having arisen between him and Denis bishop of Kilmacduagh he, on account of many injuries inflicted on him by the bishop, despoiled him of many goods and afterwards, by the advice of certain enemies of the bishop, caused him to be seized, and kept him in confinement for three nights, and laid violent hands on a number of priests and other clerks of the bishop's household and retinue, and inflicted on them and allowed to be inflicted on them other grave offences and contumelies, thereby incurring sentence of excommunication etc.; after which, repenting, he restored the bishop to liberty, submitted himself to his will and judgment, and petitioned him to absolve him, as far as he could, from the said sentence etc.; that the bishop forgave the offences inflicted on him, and, inasmuch as he could not grant Dermit absolution, remitted him, with the bishop's letters sealed with his seal, to the apostolic see in order that he might obtain such absolution etc.; wherefore the said pope, upon Dermit's alleging that he was present in the Roman court, that he was a native of the diocese of Kilmacduagh, and that unless he obtained ecclesiastical benefices he could not live becomingly, ordered on 5 Id. Jan. anno 8 [1455] a certain judge to summon the said bishop and others concerned, and to grant to Dermit, after he had made satisfaction to the bishop and the said injured parties, and after temporary suspension and penance, absolution from all sentences of excommunication etc., dispense him on account of irregularity, and dispense him to minister in his orders and to retain benefices with or without cure, provided that the said bishop consented, and to rehabilitate him, the said pope's will being further that if Dermit did not make such satisfaction etc. he should fall again under the said sentences etc. The said letters not having been drawn up on account of the said pope's death, the present pope hereby decrees that the said grant shall hold good from the date thereof, and that these presents shall suffice as proof, and orders the above dean to absolve Dermit etc. as in the said grant. Rationi congruit. (P. and H. Masheim. | P. Gratis. de Varris.) [3½ pp.]

(f. 219d.)
To the abbot of Ballintober (de Fonte Sancti Patricii) in the diocese of Tuam alias Mayo, the archdeacon of Tuam and Dermit Ostahara, a canon of the same. Mandate, as below. Eugenius IV (upon its being set forth by Edmund (fn. 6) de S[t]antona, clerk, of the diocese of Tuam alias Mayo, that after the said pope had ordered provision to be made to him of the rectory of Roba in Chera in the said diocese, of the patronage of laymen and with cure, and had dispensed him to receive and retain it, notwithstanding his defect of age, he being in or about his twenty-second year, he obtained it in virtue of the said letters and held possession for some time in virtue of the said dispensation, even after he reached the lawful age, without being ordained priest and without having obtained canonical dispensation, and thereafter continued to do so for a year and more but less than two years, without being so ordained, taking the fruits) by other letters rehabilitated him [Cal. Papal Lett., IX, p. 498], ordered certain judges to collate and assign to him, after he resigned it, the said rectory, whether void by such non-promotion or in any other way, (fn. 7) and dispensed him not to be bound for seven years, whilst studying letters and canon law in a studium particulare, there being no university in those parts, (fn. 8) to be promoted to deacon's or priest's orders on account of the said rectory, provided that within a year after obtaining possession of the rectory he should be ordained subdeacon [ibid, pp. 498, 499]. At his recent petition, containing that without being ordained subdeacon within the said year, and without being ordained deacon and priest within the said seven years he had detained and was detaining possession unduly, but had done so for less than eight years, the present pope has by other letters rehabilitated him, and required him to resign. The said rectory being therefore still void by the said non-promotion, the pope hereby orders the above three to collate and assign to Edmund, who is by both parents of noble birth, after he has resigned it, the said rectory, value not exceeding 8 marks sterling, whether void by the said non-promotion, or by the death of Magonius Yothomays [‘Yhoumys’ in Cal. IX], or in any other way; notwithstanding that he has been received by authority of the ordinary as a canon of Tuam, and that the pope has this day granted him provision of the perpetual vicarage of Robin in the said diocese, value not exceeding 4 marks sterling, which he is hereby dispensed to hold with the said rectory, they being, as he alleges, so near that they can be conveniently served by one man, for ten years, after which he is to resign the said vicarage. Nobilitas generis, vite etc. (P. and H. Masheim. | P. xx. Quarto Non. Augusti Anno Primo. de Varris.) [4¼ pp.]
