• The name of Elnamirand, given to this see in some old lists, is derived by Keating from the Irish Ail na mireann, (pronounced EL namiran.) i. e. “the stone of the portions," such having been the title given to a stone forming "the boundary between the four provinces, from which were taken the four portions of which Meath is composed." See the original in the Primer of the Irish Language, of the College of S. Columba, p. 87.

There is also another taxation of this diocese in the same Red Book, where likewise it is stated to have been made by Bishop Ledred after the Invasion of the Scotch, and therefore between 1315 and 1360. This taxation is here subjoined. The sums placed opposite to the name of each deanry are the tenths of the whole amount. Even multiplying these by ten it will be seen that the Scotch Invasion had done great detriment to Church pro
