Mandate—at the recent petition of John Offergail, priest, of the diocese of Ardagh, who has studied canon law for many years, containing that upon the voidance, by the death of Nicholas Meckeyan, its rector, of the perpetual benefice, called the rectory, of Munterueolais, which takes its name from no church and is of lay patronage, whose holder receives tithes etc. in divers parishes, and which has cure, and upon the voidance, by the death of Donatus Micgillaclain, of the perpetual vicarage of Magduma, Boniface IX ordered them, by separate mandates, to be collated and assigned to the said John, who had had papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, nobles, related in the second and second degrees of kindred, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, at the same time dispensing him to receive and hold together for life the said benefice, even if it had cure, and the said vicarage, by collations and provisions made to him under which letters he has held them for several years, but now doubts whether the collations and provisions hold good—to collate and assign to him the said benefice and vicarage, still void, value not exceeding 16 and 6 marks respectively.

The auditor is ordered, if he find, as is asserted, that neither has any right, to collate and assign them to Adam; notwithstanding that he holds the canonry and prebend of Tyb in Dublin, and the archdeaconry of Kells (Kenlys) in Meath, value together not exceeding 120 marks.
