Donald McGonagle was a native of Killybegs, County Donegal, and in 1562 was appointed Bishop of Raphoe. In the same year he was consecrated in Rome and took part in the Council of Trent. He returned to Ireland and attended a provincial synod in Ulster in 1587 when the decrees of the Council of Trent were instigated. He lived in the Manor House at Killybegs and, according to a manuscript in the British Library, 'could write well and spoke Latin and English as well as Irish'.
