Peter French (Dominican)
A member of The Tribes of Galway, French joined the Dominican Order in the south of Spain. He spent thirty years as a missionary friar among the Indians in Mexico. His book, A Catechism or Exposition of the Christian Faith was written in the Mexican language but it is uncertain if it was ever printed.
He returned to Ireland on mission, and died in Galway in 1693.
