Conclusion of peace between the Earl of Tiron and Magonius O'Donell.
As to the controversies between the Lord Con O'Neyle, Earl of Tyrone, and Magonius O'Donell, chief of Tirconell, who personally appeared for a final arrangement of the same before the Lord Deputy and Council at Dublin, 24th August, 37 Henry VIII., it was thus ordered and concluded:--
(1.) Whereas Terence, son of the Earl of Tyrone, has invaded and spoiled the country of Lord O'Donell, since O'Donell came to Dublin for the conclusion of peace, it is ordered that the spoil shall be immediately restored.
(2.) As O'Donell did not pay to the Earl an annual rent of 60 kine out of the dominion of Inyshone, according to our order at Dublin, 14th July, 35 Hen. VIII., the Earl took a pledge of O'Donell for the said rent; but not content with that pledge, he and certain inferior lords and captains of those parts invaded O'Donell's country. It is arbitrated that O'Donell shall not pay that rent; saving however to the Earl, after the death of O'Donell, all the right, claim, and interest which he has or can show to the dominion and rent.
(3.) Whereas O'Daghartie was taken by the Earl as pledge, and at present is detained as parcel of the said pledge, it is ordered that O'Daghartie and all other prisoners on each part shall be liberated without ransom.
(4.) It is further ordained, that all other matters concluded between the Earl and O'Donell by the former order shall remain in force. The Archbishops of Armagh and Dublin, and all other prelates and spiritual pastors, are intercessors, that is to say, "slantighe," so that they can fulminate censures and ecclesiastical penalties against the violators of this peace. Each party has taken his corporal oath for the observance of this peace.
(5.) In case the Earl should commit anything against O'Donell and his, we, the Lord Deputy and Council promise that we will declare his disobedience to the King, and afford our aid to O'Donell.
