His quality of tolerance rapidly won for him the confidence of everybody and his help and advice was sought by none more eagerly than by the Brit- ish government on those of Irish af- fairs of which he had a peculiar knowledge. Born in Tyrconnall (Donegal) in an bumble cottage, albeit descended from ~he great O'Donnell chieftains, he had ". deep personal knowledge of condi- tions in that county, and, for this rea- on, he was particularly fitted to be t member of the Congested Districts 3oard set up by the British for the 'nvestigation of and relief of people esiding in such districts. It was his v,,ork on this board of which the late i,relate was especially proud. He worked for and pleaded for the con- ';ests with all the force at his corn- sand, and failure was a word which md no place in his lexicon. Brought up in a Gaelic-speaking section of the country, Dr. O'Donnell was a native speaker of Gaelic, and he never lost an opportunity of for- warding the movement that did so :nuch to fire the imagination of the younger generation and to preserve the language as a bulwark of prog- ress. He was the first Irish bishop to :~sue a pastoral couched in the Irish tongue. Nor was this a mere ges- ture. In the years that followed he issued many a pastoral in Gaelic, and these always reflected a rich culture and constituted a series of models of exposition and masterpieces of Gaelic :phrase and form. His great mission was that of bring- ing about harmony. His keen intel- lect and his great experience of finance won for him the respect even of those who were bitterly resentful of all his ideas of nationalism.
