His recent petition contained that (after he had been dispensed by papal authority, as the son of an abbot of the order of St. Augustine and an unmarried woman (i) to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, (ii) having obtained the perpetual vicarage of Cluondagad in the diocese of Killaloe, to receive and hold a canonry and prebend, also of Cluandagad [sic], in Killaloe, and the rectory of the united parish churches of Ocormayc in the said diocese, of which (de quibus) the pope had ordered provision to be made to him, and two other benefices with or without cure, compatible with one another, even if canonries and prebends etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased, and hold instead five other compatible benefices), upon the voidance, by the death at the apostolic see of Odo Mecrayth, and consequent reservation to the pope, of a canonry of Killaloe and the prebend of Inyskayd, Donatus bishop of Killaloe made collation and provision thereof to him by his ordinary authority, under pretext of which he obtained possession and still detains them, taking no fruits therefrom.

To the prior of the secular and collegiate church of St. Senan, Inyskaid, in the diocese of Killaloe. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Donatus Macrayth, clerk, of the diocese of Killaloe, contained that on the voidance of a canonry of Killaloe and the prebend of Clondagad by the resignation of Thady Macrayth to Donatus, bishop of Killaloe, that bishop made collation and provision thereof to the said Donatus Macrayth, who had been 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, and had obtained no other dispensation in the matter of the said defect; and who under pretext of the said collation and provision obtained possession and still detains them, taking no fruits therefrom. Seeing that the said collation and provision are without force, and that the said canonry and prebend are still void as stated, the pope orders the above prior to collate and assign to Donatus, who is in his twenty-third year, and is on his father's side of noble birth, the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 2 marks sterling, the pope hereby specially dispensing him to hold them. Dignum arbitramur. (A. and G. de Elten. | A. xx. 2o. Non. Octobris Anno Sextodecimo. de Felletis.) [2¾ pp. See the preceding letter.]
