Mchale, John

McHale, John a Roman Catholic prelate, was born in 1791 at Tubber-navine, County Mayo, Ireland. After completing his education, he became lecturer and professor of dogmatic theology at Maynooth, holding the position about eleven years. He was then named coadjutor-bishop of Killala, "cum jure successionis," and consecrated with the title of bishop of Maroma "in partibus infidelium." On the death of Dr. Kelly he was promoted to the archiepiscopal see of Tuam, which he held until his death, November 7, 1881. He published Evidences and Doctrines of the Catholic Church, 1827, which was translated into French and German. He translated sixty of Moore's Irish Melodies into the Irish language, retaining the same metre as the originals. In 1861 he produced a large octavo volume, comprising six books of Homer's Iliad, with an Irish translation in heroic metre. (B.P.)
