    Abstract

    Donlevy, Andrew, (1680-1746), Irish ecclesiastic active in France, was born near Ballymote in Co Sligo, into a comfortably off family. He was educated locally and travelled to France c. 1710. There he registered in the Paris law faculty in 1718, took his BA in 1719 and his licence in law in 1720. In Paris, he sided with a reforming party (zelanti) who believed the Irish Church should conform to European practices, especially with regard to the education of priests.
