Pope Adrian (Hadrian?) gave Ireland to England so that the English might 'correct' them on certain matters of doctrine and practice, especially the calculation of the date for Easter, which was a hot item in those days. The Irish Church insisted on using the Jewish method, arguing that the method used by Jesus had to be correct. The Irish tonsure, among other things, was also an issue.
