The Life and Times of Daniel Murray: Archbishop of Dublin 1823-1852


Thomas J Morrissey SJ

Daniel Murray was undoubtedly the outstanding Irish Catholic archbishop of the nineteenth century. His concern for the education of the poor led to the founding of the Irish Sisters of Charity and the invitation to Dublin of the Sisters of Mercy and Irish Christian Brothers. His interest in the education of the middle class was manifested in the foundation of the Sisters of Loreto and in his support for the schools of the Jesuits and the Vincentians.

A man of great pastoral energy, he built numerous churches and readily encouraged lay involvement in the work of the diocese. He was actively involved in assisting the Holy See in the appointment of priests and bishops around the world and was renowned for his efforts to provide aid to the needy during the Great Famine.
