Forma concessionis et donationis quarundam particularium Domini Magonii O'Donell, principalis de Tirconell, exhibita ex parte ejus Regiæ Majestati," before Sir Anthony Sentleger, Lord Deputy and the Council, at Kylmaynam, 15 July, 35 Hen. VIII.


I, Magonius O'Donell, captain of my nation, do give and grant to my King, (in order that he shall always be my protector,) the moiety of the tribute due to me in Ichdarconnachd. I also grant to him the moiety of the cocket of all ships coming to Sligaghe to trade, from which I have had cocket; so that the King's bailiff or servant, called a marshal, accompanied by my bailiff, shall in like manner exact that tribute; "et quot boni fidejussores illic et quot mali, item quot loca deserta et quot habitata fuerint, nostrorum balivorum ac nostro æqualiter lucro sint et dampno." Lord O'Donell will perform whatever common distribution shall be made by the King for the public good against the lords of Ireland; and if the said common distribution should not be made for the public good, Lord O'Donell, in token of his love and good will, promises [to send] 100 oxen or martes, to the kitchen of the King or his Deputy in Ireland, every year about the feast of All Saints, according to the custom of his country. If a multitude of herrings and other fish called "garbhushe" should resort to the country of Lord O'Donell or to his sea, such as now comes into Arayn or Ynisnyeadyrn, one half thereof shall belong to the King and the other to O'Donell.
