(f. 54d.)
To the abbot of St. John the Evangelist's, Tuam, and Thomas Oruayn and John Orueladi, canons of Tuam. Mandate as below. Nicholas V (upon being informed by Odo Oheugayn, (fn. 2) priest, of the diocese of Tuam, that Donatus O[k]innhaclup (sic), (fn. 3) perpetual vicar of the parish church of Kyllerdun in the diocese of Annaghdown, an open and notorious fornicator, had openly kept a concubine (fn. 4) in his own house, neglected the cure of souls of the parishioners, and dilapidated etc. the goods of the vicarage, to the shame of the priestly order) ordered the prior of St. Mary's, Inchcleraun (de Insula Miclocheahyn, recte In[is]clochrahyn), in the diocese of Ardagh, inasmuch as from fear of Donatus's power Odo had no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Annaghdown, if and after Odo accused Donatus before the said prior, to summon Donatus and others concerned, and if he found the foregoing to be true, to deprive and remove Donatus, and in that event to collate and assign the vicarage, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling [Cal. Papal Lett. X, p. 707]. The recent petition of the said Odo contained that although he duly presented the said letters to the said prior, and requested him to proceed to their execution, nevertheless on account of the tyrannical power of Rory (Rurici) Yflahfertych, layman, of the said diocese of Annaghdown, who inordinately favoured Donatus, the said execution could not be made nor can now be made by the said prior. The pope therefore, seeing that even still the said Odo, from fear of the power of Donatus, has no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Annaghdown, orders the above three to summon Donatus and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing statement to be true, to proceed to the execution of the said letters, as if they had been directed and at the due time presented to them, and as if they had begun to execute them. Justis et honestis. (O. and Alanus. | Residuum gratis. Decimo Kal. A[u]gusti Anno Primo.Pontanus.) [2 pp.]

(f. 95d.)
To Patrick Porcell, clerk, of the diocese of Cashel. Rehabilitation, at his recent petition, containing that he formerly obtained, by collation made to him by papal authority, the parish church of Callan in the diocese of Ossory, on its voidance by the death of John [Sandere], (fn. 5) and held possession for more than a year without having himself ordained priest, and without dispensation, and that, since the lapse of the said year he, without having acquired any new title, has detained it for about four years, and still detains it. Patrick, who is by both parents of a noble race of dukes and barons, is to resign. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. (P. and M. Amici. |; P. xvi. de Varris.) [1½ pp. See Cal.Papal Lett., vol. XI, p. 463.]
(f. 96.)
To the archdeacon of Leighlin (Legenen.). Mandate, recapitulating the preceding, (fn. 6) if he find the above Patrick fit, to collate and assign to him, after he has duly resigned it, the above rectory, value not exceeding 40 marks sterling.

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1459. Anno i. Lib. 4.’ A flyleaf has, in different contemporary hands, ‘Quartus de diversis formis anno primo domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi’ and ‘R(ecipe) Ma(rcelle? ), A. (i.e. A. Concordien.).’ A similar contemporary description occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. There are i—cccxxxviiii ff. of text.
  • 2. ‘Oheogayn’ in Cal. Papal Lett. X, p. 707.
  • 3. ‘Okynnhaelub,’ ibid.
  • 4. quandam focariam et concubinam.
  • 5. per obitum quondam Johannis illius tunc ultimi rectoris. A small cross in the margin is no doubt intended to draw attention to the omission of the surname.
  • 6. Here again with per obitum quondam Johannis illius tunc ultimi rectoris, and the small marginal cross.
  • 7. infra vicecomitatum et senescalcatum de (the ‘de’ is added in the margin by P. [de Varris]) Wigtoune et Kirkeubricht et Kirkeubricht dicte diocesis consistentes. The second ‘et Kirkcubricht’ is added by ‘P.’ in the margin, but seems superfluous.
  • 8. This reference was kindly given by Mr. Maitland Thomson.
