In 1702 he returned with two fellow Dominicans, Prior Gregory French and Fr. Daniel MacDonnell. Due to the Penal Lawss and their earlier expulsion, any one of them could be deported if arrested. Blake escaped, but his companions were captured.
Blake “expressed his loneliness in a poem in classical Latin”[this quote needs a citation] called "Here Lone I Live". It is a very rare example of a poem of this genre from the west of Ireland in the 18th century.
