To the abbot of Boyle (de Buellio) and the prior of St. Mary's, Inchmacnerin (de Insulamacneri), in the diocese of Elphin. Mandate as below. Lately the pope—on being informed by Thady Macdiarmada, Cistercian monk of St. Mary's, Boyle, that Congallus, abbot of the Premonstratensian monastery of Lough Key (de Insula Sancte Trinitatis de Lochque) in the diocese of Elphin, had been guilty of dilapidation, and of simony in the admission of Thomas Yconallan and Donald Micgilliachanaych as canons of the said abbey, by extorting from each of them 10s. of silver of the money current in those parts, worth about 3 florins of gold of the camera, and also in making simoniacal collation and provision to Araltheus Ocathaalan, canon of the said abbey, of the priory of Lough Oughter (Insula Sancte Trinitatis de Lochuacthayr) in the diocese of Kilmore, which is in the gift of the abbot of the said abbey, by extorting from him a like sum—ordered [Cal. Lett. VII, p. 193] the provost of Elphin, if and after Thady accused Congallus before him, if he found the above or sufficient thereof to be true, to deprive Congallus, and in that event to make provision of the said abbey to Thady. Further, the pope has this day ordered the above two to cause Rory Ocaritayth, clerk, of the said diocese, to be received as a canon of the said monastery, immediately belonging to the Roman church, and to receive his profession [below, p. 63]. Seeing that, as Rory's petition contained, the said Thady was, at the date of the said earlier letters, under the greater excommunication, that in the same letters (under pretext of which the said provost deprived Congallus and appointed Thady, who obtained possession of the administration and has unduly detained the same for more than six years) the true value of the said monastery or of its abbatial mensa is not expressed, and that what was related above is true, Congallus having furthermore committed perjury and being a notorious fornicator, the pope orders the above two, if and after Rory accuses the said Congallus before them, to summon Congallus and Thady, and if they find the new facts to be as stated, to declare the said earlier letters and the said appointment of Thady to be null and void, and in that event, and if they find the charges against Congallus or sufficient thereof to be true, to deprive him, and to remove him and Thady, and if they find Rory to be fit, to make provision to him of the said monastery, value, as he asserts, not exceeding 24 marks [cf. ibid.], and furthermore to grant that he may be blessed by any catholic bishop, who shall send to the pope his oath of fealty as usual.Solicite consideracionis.

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern Lib. 140. On the bottom edge is the contemporary description, almost obliterated: Primus de Regularibus, de diuersis formis et beneficiis et pre[bendis] vacaturis anno XI.
2 The word non is cancelled. It is omitted altogether in the recapitulation in the following mandate. In both cases a cross in the margin of the text draws attention to the discrepancy.
