Edmund MacGauran (1548 - 1593):
Archbishop, Roman Catholic


Edmund MacGauran was born in County Cavan and was educated abroad. In 1581 he was appointed Bishop of Ardagh, and in 1587 became Archbishop of Armagh. He was opposed to the rule of Elizabeth and sought help from Philip II of Spain. On his return to Ireland, he had to take refuge with Hugh Maguire. He was killed when Maguire, at his instigation, rebelled against the English. His followers are said to have taken away his head.
