Excerpt:

 

The Corpo Santo church in Lisbon has always been closely associated ever since its erection with the Irish Catholic community, a fact which is generally taken for granted. What is not so widely known perhaps is the history of Father Daniel O'Daly, better known in his time as Father Dominic of the Rosary, whose tomb, covered by a marble slab, is the one and only tomb in the cloisters of that church. It carries the following inscription:

 

  • Hic jacet
  • Venerabilis Pater Magister
  • Frater Dominicus de Rosario Hibernus
  • Hujus et Conventus Monialium Boni Successus
  • Fundator
  • In variis Regum Legationibus felix
  • Episcopus Conimbricensis Electus
  • Vir. Pruidentia Literis et Religione conspicuus
  • Obiit 30 Junii, Anno Domini 1662
  • Aetatis 67.
