Offaly, he was educated at St Anthony's in Rome from 1632, and was appointed Professor of Theology at St Isidore's in Rome in 1650. Author of Disputatio Theologica de Incarnatione Verbi (1645) and Cursus Philosophiae (1666), he also composed poetry in Latin. His devotional text Lóchrann na gCreidmheach (Lucerna Fidelium) (1676) was produced for the Irish and Scottish missions, and for the spiritual welfare of Irish soldiers in Continental armies [see Irish Brigade].
