E C C L E S I A S T I C A L R E P O R T S , IN 1 8 0 7, { Cloyne. GENERAL OBSERVATIONS: Containing ANSWERS to QUERY the ift, Seftion 6thQuerie? the 3d, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8 th;— all the other Queries being anfwered in the Columns. Qu: ry 1. Seft. 6th.— THERE ii by Aft of Parliament a fufficient power lodged in the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council, and the Bifhops in the feveral Diocefes in Ireland, either to unite or difunite Pariihes, when either may be deemed advifeable; and the Archbilhops and Bifhops are enabled, by Aft of Parliament, to form a Dillrift ( part of a large Pariih) into a feparate Parifh, under the title of a Perpetual Curacy ; by which means feveral large Parifhej in Ireland have been aftuaily divided into two or more feparate and diftinft Parifhes. Query 3d — THE Board of Firft Fruits can augmsnt fuch Livings by purchafing Glebes and impropriate Tythes, out or the produce of the Firft Fruits and Twentieth Parts granted for that purpofe by Queen Anne, and by affifting the Incumbents of them with money for the erection of Glebe Houfes; but this Fund is fmall, and unequal to the efFcftual augmentation of fuch Livings.— There is alfo another Fund arifmg from a bequed of the late Dr. Boulter, Primate of Ireland, and vefted in the Board of Firft Fruits by Aft cf Parliament, out of which Fund the Board of Firft Fruits is enabled to augment Livings under One hundred Pounds by the year, by adding fo much Salary yearly to the Incumbents cffuch Livings, as will make their annual Incomes One hundred Pounds. There is at prefent no other mode of improving fuch fmall Livings; but thefe Funds may be increafed by the bounty of the King in Parliament, fo as to render fuch fmall Livings capable of affording to the refident Incumbents thereof the means of comfort in cafes where the Funds already mentioned ate infufficient. N° 5.— IT is apprehended by the Bifhops of Ireland, that the prefent Canon Law, as hitherto e. rercifed here, is fufficient to remedy the evil of Non- refidence ; but at prefent the execution of the Canon Law, in cafes of Non- refidence, has been obllrufted by appeals: and there is a cafe now depending before certain Commiffioners of Review, appointed by His Majefty, which, if it fhal! be decided in favour of the Ecclefialtical authority exercifed in that cafe, will ellablifh fuch a precedent in the cafe of Non- refidence, as will fuperfede the necetTity cf recommending to the Legiflature to make any other provifion for the purpofe of enforcing Refidence in Ireland. But, if the decifion in that cafe fhould be otherwife, it may then become advifcable to apply to the Legiflature to enaft foine Law for enforcing the Refidence of the Clergy in Ireland. N° 6.— WE apprehend that t~ he Laws already in being ellablifh the mode of applying fuch Funds as are now applicable, for the purpofe of building or repairing Churches or Glebe Houfes, or the improvement of Glebes. N° 7.— THE Laws now in being are, we apprehend, fully fufficient to prevent Unions, Perpetual or Epifcopal, from being improperly made, and to preferve Churches and Glebe Houfts from dilapidations, when duly enforced. N° 8.— We are of opinion that the due execution of the now exifting Laws, with the fmall alteration which we have fuggefted ( if found neceflary on the contingency already mentioned) and fuch grants as His Majefty and the Parliament may in their bounty make for the augmenting the Incomes of poor Livings, purchafing Glebes, and affifting the building of Churches and Glebe Houfes, will be fuScient for the prefent improvement, proteftion, and fupport of the Eftablifhed Church in Ireland. WM Cloyne. fOR PROVINCE or MUNSTER — No. 6.— DIOCESES OF CASHEL AND EMLY. THE Unions of Parishes which form the Corps of Dignities and Prebends in the Cathedrals of CASHEL and Emly, as in other Cathedrals in the Province of Munster, are of so ancient date, that they cannot now be traced to the period of their institution. Such Unions seem to have been always viewed differently from the Unions of Parishes unconnected with Chapters; for, though there existed the Stat. 2. G. I. c. 14. which had provided for the dissolution of Unions in general, it was yet found necessary to pass the Act 21 G. II. c. 8. to meet the particular Law of Unions which are the Corps of Dignities and Prebends, and to give a power in such cases to disappropriate Parishes lying remote from the Parish, which was to remain as a part of the corps of the Dignity or Prebend. In that Act it was made the condition of such. disappropriation, that another Parish, at least equal in value, and lying contiguous or convenient, should be added in the place of the Parish disappropriated. THIS condition has rendered it impracticable, in most instances, to dissolve these Unions, and to make new arrangements which would seem to promise advantage to the Public, and a greater ease in the performance of Clerical Duty. THIS Obfervation is made in reference to Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. - - - - - - - - - - - - in the Diocefe of Cafhel. Emly. Waterford. Lifmore. Cloyne. Cork. Ross. Limerick. Ardfert. Killaloe.
