Hello Dr, This may or may not be relevant.This article which I have by pure accident was published in the Irish News(Belfast) on Sept 20th 1936 and reproduced Sept 20th 2005. "The first pilgrimage from the archdiocese of Armagh to the shrine of Blessed Oliver Plunkett at Drogheda will take place tomorrow.It will be led by his Eminence Cardinal Mac Rory,Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland,successor to the martyred primate. From the historic parish of Mullaghbawn pilgrims will travel under the direction of Very Rev O Clarke PP and Rev Seamus Corry CC. They will bear from their venerable and respected parish priests the first gift presented by pilgrims to the shrine. It is a unique and precious gift- an 18th century chalice-a personal gift from Fr Clarke in whose possession it has been for many years as a precious heirloom. The intrinsic value of the gift is far surpassed by its sacred associations. The inscription on the front of the chalice takes us back over two centuries. It is in latin and reads'Orate pro anima Margarita Buin et Alois Taaffe,1721'. Beyond the names of Aloysius Taaffe and his wife, there seems to be little information regarding them,but it is plain that they belong to Louth."
Some months back I left a copy of the article with the Secretary in St Peter's Church,West St Drogheda.Although I have not seen the chalice I was advised that it is still in the church sacristy.
