Kylmurcun
CPL IX 85-97 To Donald Macdonnchaid, Cormac Macdonnchaid (fn. 5) and William Ocommochan, canons of Achonry. Mandate—the pope having been informed by Rory Ohorechti, clerk, of the diocese of Elphin, that Matthew Okallanan, perpetual vicar of Kylmurcun in the diocese of Achonry, has delapidated the vicarage, has for a long time not served it, and has betaken himself elsewhere for his carnal conveniences (fn. 6), is a public and notorious perjurer and fornicator, is of evil life and unhonest conversation, and is involved in very many other crimes [not here named]—if the said Rory, who was lately dispensed by papal authority, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, will accuse Matthew before them, to summon Matthew, and if they find the above or enough thereof to be true, to deprive Matthew, and in that event to collate and assign the said vicarage
