Anthony O'Garvey

Anthony O’Garvey was the Roman Catholic Bishop of Dromore from 1747 to 1763 or 1766 during the Recusancy in Ireland. He succeeded to a vacant bishopric administered by the Archbishops of Armagh and was succeeded by Bishop Denis Maguire. Bishop O’Garvey feared living openly in Newry and instead lived in the townlands at Aughnagon. The Bishop is recorded as assisting at a 1759 A.D. consecration in the Hibernia Dominicana at page 361.[1][2]
