THE PIPE ROLL OF CLOYNE
(Rotulus Pipae Clonensis)

In this first substantial effort at an annotated edition of this document,
the editors have emended the only surviving transcript, in the process 
expurging a certain amount of error, while the numerous explanatory notes 
contain a rich store of background information concerning the social 
history, family history(both Anglo-Norman and Gaelic) and toponomy of the 
Diocese of Cloyne and further afield, thus providing a unique depth to the
study of this equally(in an Irish context) unique document.

CONNA 
in History and Tradition

INTRODUCTION

Conna district, situated in North East Cork, encompasses much of the tiny barony of Kinnatalloon and part of the baronies of Barrymore and Condons and Clangibbon. It is made up of the old civil parishes of Aghern, Knockmourne, Mogeely North and Templevalley. It runs to the Waterford border, near Tallow to the east and Ballyduff to the north. Much of the area lies in the valley of the winding River Bride with three fine arched bridges in a 4-mile stretch. Close to each of these bridges are the remains of three ancient castles in delightful surroundings, built in strategic positions. Conna village lies in the centre, with the little hamlets of Curraglass and Aghern to the east and west respectively The ruins of Knockmourne Abbey are a little to the west of Conna village while the remains of the historic church of Mogeely adjoins Mogeely Castle. A few miles to the south are the ivy-clad remnants of Templevalley church, established by the Knights Templar. Plainly, this small community, associated with Sir Walter Raleigh and Oliver Cromwell, is steeped in history and tradition. Conna Community Council, aware of the need, indeed the duty, to record all this for posterity, set up a History Sub-Committee. This publication is the result of the labours of that committee. The following facts are worth noting; 150 years ago The Great Famine was raging throughout the land, two centuries ago the 1798 Rebellion, involving Conna-born Fr. Peter O'Neill, took place and exactly 400 years ago Raleigh mapped out his Mogeely property, the oldest estate map in Ireland. These events feature prominently in this book which recalls the milestones that helped shape the present day Conna. .

Irish Historical & Archaeological Researches:
Collected works of Liam O'Buachalla

Published in 1988 by: CLANN NA GREINE TEO., CLYDUFF, CARRIGTWOHILL, CO.CORK, IRELAND
Price £9.99. Post Free.
+£4.00 Air Mail.

One of the most creditable achievements of the Cork Historical and Archaeological Society is that now and again it brings forth scholars of the calibre Liam O'Buachalla. Far from being a professional historian or archaeologist Liam was a working farmer with roots deep in his native soil of Carrigtwohill parish. Somehow this sense of belonging lent to his writings a solidity and a feeling of continuity, so that he was as much at home in the tribal milieu of early Christian Ireland as he was with the Penal day tenant-farmers among whom he could identify his own ancestors. This is not to say that Liam was a mere dabbler. His 'Contributions towards the political history of Munster, 450-800 AD' was a brilliant and meticulous piece of research, spread over four issues of our journal, one which attracted the attention of well-known scholars nationwide. If today some of his conclusions are yielding place to those of more recent investigators, that is only in the natural order of things, since historical truth is an edifice upon which each generation must lay its course. What will never be replaced is the innate feeling for and knowledge of his own locality displayed in such articles as 'Ui Mac Caille in pre-Norman times', 'Ecclesiastical families of Cloyne', 'The Carrigtwohill Tithe affray, 1833'. I had the good fortune to know Liam for some years before his untimely death as we served together on the Council of the Society. In the pages of the journal we conducted a friendly argument about the site of 'Insovenagh'. I thought I had the stronger arguments on my side but found out many years later that Liam's instinct had been right all the time. It is fitting that Liam's articles should be assembled in one volume, so that his friends, admirers, and indeed future generations can the more easily study the life's work of a man whose grasp of historical reality, depth of local knowledge, and sheer dedication still serve to inspire us all.

		Parish Census of Midleton 1842
			   by 
		Very Rev. William Keane
	      P.P. of Midleton (1841-1851)
	      Bishop of Cloyne (1857-1874)


			   Edited by
		Canon B. Troy P.P., V.F.,Midleton

Price: £10
Available from: Canon B. Troy
                Parochial House
		Youghal Road
		Midleton
		Co. Cork
		Ireland

This edition strictly follows the order of the original census.
Some of the district names no longer exist but their location may be found in the first Ordnance Survey of 1841. The Main Street is simply STREET.
BRODERICK STREET is now Coolbawn and CHARLES STREET is now Connolly Street.

The ages of the individuals are given but sometimes are not very accurate.
For genealogical purposes the inclusion of the mother's maiden name is very helpful as is the relationships of individuals to the head of household.

This census was made before the Great Famine and another was made towards the end of it in 1848.
It is hoped that this will be published towards the end of the year.
