Memorandum by Fr William Delany SJ, regarding the purchase of Killiney Castle by the Society of Jesus

Handwritten memorandum by Fr William Delany SJ, regarding the purchase of Killiney Castle by the Society of Jesus. Describes in detail the events leading up to, and surrounding, the purchase of the property. Describes how Fr Walsh (Irish Fr Provincial) insisted on telling the Cardinal about the purchase before the transfer had been completed ‘He went accordingly and returned in a very short time quite disappointed. The Cardinal had received the proposal unfavourably...’. Continues ‘I then said it would be my duty at once to inform Mr Warren (owner of Killiney castle) of this difficulty...He replied that it did not surprise him as he half suspected the Cardinal wished to have the place himself...’. Refers to his (Fr Delany’s) meeting with the Cardinal who finally agreed to allow the deal with Mr Warren to be completed. Remarks that a second meeting with Mr Warren revealed that a better offer had been received and accepted by him ‘I was much disappointed of course and asked him the purchaser’s name and the terms. He told me Mr Richard Martin had bought the property for 11,000 cash...’. Describes a meeting with Mr Martin and their agreement ‘...I finally asked him what he would have for his bargain as he had said he brought it as a speculation. He replied...£1,000 on his bargain.’. Concludes that the purchase of property was completed a few weeks later.
