Depositions relating to Corofin

A sworn statement, made by the Rev. Neptune Blood, is to the effect that he was despoiled of goods worth £180, as well as of church livings worth £140 yearly. His house at Killinaboy was pulled down. He lost debts amounting to £120, due to him by Pierce Comyn merchant, Mahone Oge O’Loghlen, Murrogh O’Brien of Tullagh, Donogh O’Brien, and Ross O’Loghlen of Faheybeg. His cattle were taken away by Hugh Hogan, and Teige O’Brien of Caherminnane. He adds that George Owens of Kilfenora was murdered by Teige FitzPatrick of Ballyshanny, and that Michael Hunt of Mooghna was slain by Simon FitzPatrick.
