The trial of the Templars in Ireland was rather different from that elsewhere. Any Templar who was a visitor to Ireland was not cross-examined. There is no evidence that the Templars were required to abjure all heresies, or that they were sent to do penance. Overall, it appears that the papal investigators attempted to investigate the Templars in Ireland with all due rigour, but that their efforts were not entirely successful. A number of friars gave evidence against the Templars, which amounted to little more than a statement of dislike. However, the inquisitors did sent information to their colleagues in Britain which was used in the summary sent to the papal commissioners preparing for the Council of Vienne in 1312.
