To the treasurer of Killaloe (Laonien.), and Donatus Meccrach and Thady Olachnayn. canons of the same. Mandate as below. It has been recently set forth to the pope on behalf of Malachy Omullachnan, priest, of the diocese of Killaloe, that although Nicholas V ordered the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Kyllmanyn in the said diocese to be united and appropriated to the Augustinian monastery of Tamdonayn. wont to be governed by a warden (per custodem), in virtue of which the warden and convent obtained possession and have since held it, and hold it at present, the said pope's will being that it should not be defrauded of its due services nor the cure of souls in it neglected, nevertheless, in consequence of the neglect of the said warden and convent, the said church has been almost brought to ruin, divine worship is not celebrated therein as it ought to be, the cure of souls of the parishioners is abandoned, and many of them have died without confession [and] the sacraments of Eucharist and Extreme Unction. (fn. 4) The pope therefore orders the above three to summon the said warden and convent and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to dissolve the said union and appropriation, and in that event to collate and assign the said vicarage, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, to Malachy; whether it be void by such dissolution, or by the deprivation of Thady Mochonyn without the Roman court, or be void in any other way. Apostolice sedis circumspecta. (B. and Alanus. | B. xxx. Coronensis.) [3 pp. See Cal. Papal Letters, X, p. 463.]


  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1463. Anno 5. Lib. 3,’ and on a modern flyleaf is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 5. to. 14.’ There is no contemporary flyleaf, but the usual contemporary description occurs on the bottom edge of the volume, viz.: ‘Tertius de diversis anno quinto domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi.’ F. i. is headed ‘de provisionibus prelatorum [anno] v,’ but the words ‘provisionibus prelatorum’ are cancelled, and above them is substituted a word which is almost cut off by the binder, but is evidently ‘diversis.’ The heading ‘de diversis v’ occurs also on f. 26, again half cut off by the binder. There are i–cccxii. ff. of text.
  • 2. The surname ‘Graym’ is added in the margin and subscribed P. [de Varris].
  • 3. Preterea volumus quod formam huiusmodi a te tunc prestiti juramenti nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procures.
  • 4. sine confessione [ac] eucharistie et extreme unctionis sacramentis.
