|To the archbishop of Cashel. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Thomas Wallse, provincial of the province of Ireland, and Donald Ygormellay and William de Burgo, of the order of Carmelites, contained that recently Kennedy Macbriayn and Torieleus (? recte Torletus), brothers, and James Deles, [all] donsels, of the dioceses of Emly and Limerick, for themselves and for the welfare of the souls of their progenitors, to the praise of the divine name and from reverence for St. Mary the Virgin, granted in perpetual frankalmoin to the said Donald and William a certain place called Milltown (fn. 3) in the said diocese of Emly, to the effect that on some part of the said place a convent of St. Mary, of the said order, should be built; and added that Donald and William accepted the said place in good faith, without having obtained any licence from the apostolic see, that they have remained in it for some time and celebrated masses and other divine offices there, not in contempt of the Keys, but that, having been excommunicated by the ordinary and proclaimed excommunicate they have given up the said place and had recourse to the apostolic see. The pope therefore orders the above archbishop, if the facts be as stated, to absolve Donald and William from any sentences etc. incurred by reason of the foregoing, enjoining penance etc., dispense them on account of any irregularity contracted, and rehabilitate them; and moreover, if he find the said grant lawful, to confirm and approve it and its consequences, and to grant licence to Donald and William and other friars of the order to build in the said place a house of the said order with church, bell-tower, bell, cemetery, dormitory, refectory, gardens (fn. 4) and other necessary offices, and to transfer themselves thither etc., saving the right of the parish church etc., without requiring licence of the diocesan and any other.
