(1816–85), Catholic archbishop of Dublin from 1879, having earlier (1877–9) served as Cullen's auxiliary, made a cardinal in 1882. He published a circular on the question of university education for Catholics in 1879. An urbanite, he had little sympathy for agrarian problems, opposing both the Land League and the ‘no rent’ manifesto. He never imposed himself on his episcopal colleagues as successfully as Cullen had done.
