William J. Walsh, Archbishop of Dublin, 1841-1921: no uncertain voice

Front Cover
Four Courts Press, 2000 - Biography & Autobiography - 404 pages
This book re-evaluates the career of the man described shortly after his death as 'the greatest archbishop of Dublin since St Laurence O'Toole'. His greatest impact was in education but he also made a significant contribution in the political and social spheres, managing through years of tumult to keep the Catholic Church in touch with the aspirations of the majority population both on national and social issues.
