Richard Fitzralph ( - 1360):
Bishop, Church of Ireland


Richard FitzRalph was born in Dundalk and was educated at Oxford, where he became a Doctor of Divinity. In 1333 he was appointed Chancellor of the University of Oxford. Having been promoted from Chancellor of Lincoln to Archdeacon of Chester and then Dean of Lichfield, he was advanced to the see of Armagh in 1346 by Pope Clement VI. In a controversy involving the secular and regular clergy, he sided with the former and appeared at Avignon, where the cardinals ruled against him. He died at Avignon, and in 1370, it is said, his bones were removed to Dundalk. He is believed to have translated, among many other things, the Bible into Irish.
