Edmund O'Reilly (1598 - 1669):
Archbishop, Roman Catholic


Edmund O'Reilly was born in Dublin and was educated abroad. In 1642 he became vicar-general of the diocese of Dublin. After being imprisoned and banished, he returned and was appointed Archbishop of Armagh in 1657, though as a Catholic archbishop he was only able to visit Armagh surreptitiously on a few occassions. Nine years later he was again imprisoned and deported to Europe. He died in France.
