(f. 36.)
To the prior of St. Mary's, Durmach, in the diocese of Meath. Mandate—the pope having been informed by Donald Omaeyladgayn, scholar, of the diocese of Meath, that formerly Fergallus Oluonaym, perpetual vicar of Laindela in the said diocese, made a simoniacal bargain with the late Rory Oluonaym, priest, about the said vicarage, which Fergallus was claiming, to the effect that if Rory would give up his possession in favour of Fergallus the latter would give him for life, and did give him, a moiety of the said vicarage and, amongst other things, a certain chapel annexed to the vicarage, further promising that if Rory died first a certain son of Rory should have the said chapel, in virtue of which bargain Rory duly resigned and Fergallus obtained possession of the vicarage; and that the said Fergallus is also a notorious fornicator—if and after Donald (who was recently ordered to be dispensed by papal authority, as the son of unmarried parents, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure) has been so dispensed and has been tonsured, and if he be found fit, and if he will accuse Fergallus etc. before the above prior, as usual, to summon Fergallus and others concerned, and if he find the above to be true, to deprive Fergallus, and in that event to collate and assign the said vicarage, value not exceeding 18 marks sterling, which was formerly, as some allege, of lay patronage, although for the past forty years three or four perpetual vicars have been successively instituted and held it without being presented by any lay patron, nor is a patron to be found in Ireland; whether it become void by such deprivation, or be void by the subsequent death without the Roman court of the above Rory, or by the resignation of the above Fergallus and Rory, or in any other way.

To the prior of St. Columba's, Oransay (de Oruansa), in the diocese of Sodor. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Kenneth (Cannicus) Anguscii, priest, of the diocese of Sodor, contained that on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of St. Finioga in Coll (Sancte Fimoge in Cola) in the said diocese by the resignation to bishop John of Fingonius Fingonii who had held it for more than a year without being ordained priest and without dispensation, the said bishop, without the consent of the chapter of Sodor, appropriated it by his ordinary authority to the nuns' monastery of St. Mary, Iona (monasterio monialium Sancte Marie Insule de I) in the said diocese; and added that John, temporal lord de Fini in the said place, opposing the said appropriation, has for more than a year taken the fruits etc. of the said vicarage, and asserts that he will continue to take them until provision is made of a fit vicar. Seeing that the said vicarage is therefore still void as above, and so long void that its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, the pope hereby orders the above prior to summon the said nuns and others concerned, and to collate and assign the said vicarage, with cure and value not exceeding 5 marks sterling, whether it be void as above or in any other way, to Cannicus, removing any unlawful detainer.
