(c.1570–1628), Archbishop of Tuam and translator of The New Testament [see Bible in Irish]. Born in Kilkenny, he was among the first students to enter TCD. He assumed responsibility for the translation project which Elizabeth I had encouraged. Assisted by Domhnall Óg Ó hUiginn of Galway (d. 1602), he saw Tiomna Nuadha (1603) through the press. He went on to make a translation of Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer, Leabhar na nUrnaightheadh gComhcoidchiond (1609).
