Description
Abstract (cited)
A study of the churches and lands of the diocese of Achonry in the pre-Invasion period and a reconstruction of its land-holding as far as possible. This is the fourth in a series of papers on medieval diocesan ecclesiastical lands. The methodology involves the reconstruction of the temporal possessions by using sources from (or as near as possible to) the Anglo-Norman period. The earliest extant such source for Achonry dates to the later sixteenth century. The church estates are then surveyed historically. In most cases, the churches and their estates are shown to be Early Christian in origin.
