In 1643 he was translated to the see of Clogher. Owen Roe O'Neill chose him as his adviser and on O'Neill's death in 1649 he was asked to lead the Ulster army. He stormed Dungiven, County Londonderry. His troops were defeated near Letterkenny, County Donegal, in an engagement in which he was badly wounded. He fled to Enniskillen, where he was taken prisoner by Cromwellian troops and executed.
