Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick - Present Day

Revival of Order of St Patrick by Baron Longford-Annaly - Captain of the Sleught William

Prime Minister Winston Churchill suggested reviving the Order in 1943 to recognise the services in North Africa of Generalthe Hon.Sir Harold Alexander, a member of an Ulster Scotsfamily from County Tyrone, but the opinion of the other ministers and civil servants was that it would upset the diplomatic balance between London and Dublin.[13]TaoiseachSeán Lemass considered reviving the Order during the 1960s, but did not take a decision.[10]  

The Baron of Longford-Annaly who is the legal holder of the hereditiments and rights to  Inchmore Island and Abbey of St. Patrick and St. Columb  and legitimate holder of the rights to  Captainship of the Slewght William of Ardagh has privately revived the Order of St. Patrick and Order of St. Columb .

St. Patrick and Ardagh - Chiefs and Captains of The Ardagh

Early and pre-history

Ardagh village is located beside Ardagh Mountain, a hill which reaches a height 650 feet (200 meters). This hill, formerly known as Brí Leith, was believed to be home of Midir, a pre-Christian god. Brí Leith is associated with several folkloric stories and is mentioned in the Book of Tara. The Book of Rights notes that the high king was entitled to have bilberries from Brí Leith as part of his harvest meal.[3]

There are several important Early Christian sites in and near Ardagh, including the Church of St. Mel.[3] St. Mel is the patron of Ardagh and was the first bishop, he was part of St. Patrick's entourage and some say he was his nephew. This means the history of Ardagh dates back to the dawn of Christianity in Ireland, and it's episcopal succession can be tracked back to one of the primitive fathers of the Irish church.[5]

Moiety of Ardagh to Baron Delvin in County Lonford




Moiety  is a Middle English word for one of two equal parts under the feudal system . [4]  Thus on the death of a feudal baron  or lord of the manor  without a male heir (the eldest of whom would inherit all his estates by the custom of male primogeniture ) but with daughters as heiresses, a  moiety  of his fiefdom  would generally pass to each daughter, to be held by her husband. This would involve the division of the barony, generally consisting of several manors, into two or more groups of manors, which division would presumably be effected by negotiation between the parties concerned. Such was the case in the barony of Newmarch, the  caput  or chief manor of which was at North Cadbury , Somerset, when James de Newmarch died in 1216; had no son but left two co-heiresses, Isabel and Hawise, who being heirs of a tenant-in-chief  became wards of the king.

been leased to Francis Shane, knt. for a term of years, and a quarter of the Do, minicans lands, to which belonged the rectory of Granari ; there was appendant to this rectory a chapel of ease, called Clowneballema‘arnan, in the county of Cavan. Sir Francis Shạne had also a lease of the rectory of Surade, alias Street, lying partly in the county of Longford, and partly in that of Westmeath ; and of those of Shrowell, Külacamock, Moydowe, Kilnashee, Tashevat, Tasbeene, Clonchies, Templemichell, Kilglasse, and Ballincarmick, with three cartrons of land, in the Breanow, and the wood of the Breanow and Strother, all which rec.

It appears by letters patent dated the 26th of February, in the seventeenth year of James the first, that bis Majesty had intended, on the plantation of the county of Leitrim, to assign these lands to the bishop of Ardagh, in lieu of which the bishop had covenanted for himself and his successors, to release to his clergy of the said county thequartaparsepiscopalis; but as the bishop of that day neglected to pass patent, pursuant to said letters, an application was made by bishop Richardson to King Charles the first, who, on the 24th July 1631, and 8th April 1633, directed these lands to be granted to the bishop, pursuant to the intentions of his father in this matter. This measure was however retarded by a former order of the council-board of the 17th March 1616, whereupon the King, by his letters of the 21st June 1636, ordered this grant to pass. The grant appears to have taken effect in 1638.pursuant to the tenor of a certificate made by the commissioners for remedy of defective

titles, dated 10th May 1637, contirmed by the lord deputy and Council. 1698. KILTOGHARD.--The ancient parish church of Kiltohorke, alias Kiitoghard, in the

barony and county of Leitrim, being situate in an uninbabited and remote part of the parish ; it was made lawful, as Carrick-drumruske in the said parish and barony was an english corporation and wholly inhabited by Protestants, and therefore convenient for the situation of the said parish church, to build the parish church at a convenient place in the town of Carrick-drumruske, the ground for the site of the church and church-yard having been set apart for the purpose, by sir George St. George, of Hedford, bart. v. 9. 1723, SHRULE.-- The site of the parish-church of Shrule removed, with the required con.

The Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick is a dormant British order of chivalry associated with Ireland. The Order was created in 1783 by King George III at the request of the then Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, The 3rd Earl Temple (later created Marquess of Buckingham). The regular creation of knights of the Order lasted until 1922, when most of Ireland gained independence as the Irish Free State, a dominion within what was then known as the British Commonwealth of Nations. While the Order technically still exists, no knight of St Patrick has been created since 1936, and the last surviving knight, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, died in 1974. Elizabeth II, however, remains the Sovereign of the Order, and one officer, the Ulster King of Arms (now represented in the office of Norroy and Ulster King of Arms), also survives. St Patrick is patron of the order; its motto is Quis separabit?, Latin for "Who will separate [us]?": an allusion to the Vulgate translation of Romans 8:35, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?"[1]

Most British orders of chivalry cover the entire United Kingdom, but the three most exalted ones each pertain to one constituent country only. The Order of St Patrick, which pertains to Ireland, is the most junior of these three in precedence and age. Its equivalent in England, the Most Noble Order of the Garter, is the oldest order of chivalry in the British Isles, dating from the mid fourteenth century. The Scottish equivalent is the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, dating in its present form from 1687.


Revival by Baron Longford-Annaly

Prime Minister Winston Churchill suggested reviving the Order in 1943 to recognise the services in North Africa of Generalthe Hon.Sir Harold Alexander, a member of an Ulster Scotsfamily from County Tyrone, but the opinion of the other ministers and civil servants was that it would upset the diplomatic balance between London and Dublin.[13]TaoiseachSeán Lemass considered reviving the Order during the 1960s, but did not take a decision.[10]   The Baron of Longford-Annaly who is the legal holder of the hereditiments and rights to  Inchmore Island and Abbey  and legitimate holder of the rights to  Captainship of the Slewght William of Ardagh has privately revived the Order of St. Patrick and Order of St. Columb .


Saint Patrick  (Latin :  Patricius ; Irish :  Pádraig   [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəɟ] ; Welsh :  Padrig ) was a fifth-century Romano-British  Christian missionary  and bishop  in Ireland . Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint  of Ireland, the other patron saints being Brigit of Kildare  and Columba . Patrick was never formally canonised , [2]  having lived prior to the current laws of the Catholic Church  in these matters. Nevertheless, he is venerated as a Saint in the Catholic Church  and in the Eastern Orthodox Church , where he is regarded as equal-to-the-apostles  and Enlightener of Ireland. He is also regarded as a Saint by the Anglican Communion  and the Lutheran Churches . [3]

Columba  or  Colmcille [a]  (7 December 521 – 9 June 597 AD) was an Irish  abbot  and missionary evangelist credited with spreading Christianity in what is today Scotland  at the start of the Hiberno-Scottish mission . [3] [4]  He founded the important abbey  on Iona , which became a dominant religious and political institution in the region for centuries. He is the patron saint of Derry . He was highly regarded by both the Gaels  of Dál Riata  and the Picts , and is remembered today as a Catholic saint  and one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland . [5]
