Kynmara, Ballinclare – 1502

Tuam Herald 26th May, 1888 p4Kinvara pier
In 1501 a Bull of excommunication against certain malefactors in the College of St Nicholas at Galway was addressed by Pope Alexander to the Archbishop of Tuam and the bishops of Clonfert and “Melipotamus.” The document details the full penalties of that dread punishment, and is too long for reproduction here. The mention of this See carries our mind to the great Irishman Cardinal Wiseman who before his translation to Westminster held this title in “partibus infidelium”.

Another Bull relating to the parish of Tiraglas and the Vicariates of Kynmara (Kinvara) and Ballinclare (Ballyclera) is addressed by same Pope to three canons of Clonefert, Florence O’Genwayn, Thaddeus Macyachayn, and Gubertus Macmylord. It issued from Rome and bears date 9th of December, 1502
