17th July, 1788
(abridged)

A short time ago some labourers were clearing the race ground of Loughmore, near Limerick. They found a small brass box, containing a piece of parchment five inches square, on which is written the admission of a fellow or scholar at Mungret University. Mungret University was at an early age famous. At the top is a picture of St. Patrick. It is signed Gulielmus Nophine, with the date A.D. 485. It was purchased for a guinea and sent as a present to a member of the Irish Academy.
