The recent petition of Cornelius Yflayn, abbot of the monastery of St. John the Evangelist, Gill Abbey alias St. Finbar's Cave (de Antro (fn. 4) sancti Finbarri), O.S.A., in the diocese of Cork, contained that although provision of that monastery was made to him by Paul II, and although he has since laudably ruled and administered it, and although to him and the convent belongs the choice of the canons thereof, and their confirmation to the abbot and convent of St. Mary's, Cong (de Concha), O.S.A., in the diocese of Tuam, nevertheless Rustardus de Burgo, abbot of St. Mary's, Cong, (fn. 5) and fatherabbot of the said order, and the convent of the same have, without citing him, etc., at least canonically, de facto deprived him of the said rule and administration, and, without any previous election, and against the custom hitherto observed, have received divers persons as canons of the said monastery, and have almost despoiled it of all its moveable goods, and taken them away.
