An item from the archives which may be of interest:
Edward MacLysaght & H.F. Berry, Report on documents relating to the Wardenship of Galway, Analecta Hibernica no.14 (The Irish Manuscripts Commission Ltd, 1944).
This number of Analecta Hibernica is devoted to material relating to the ecclesiastical jurisdiction known as the Wardenship of Galway. Its history covers a period of three and a half centuries: from 1484 when the Wardenship was created, to 1831, in which year the Catholic Diocese of Galway, subsequently united to the Dioceses of Kilfenora and Kilmacduagh, was formed.
