Legacy

Ó Maolconaire died in Madrid in 1629. In 1654 his body was brought back from Madrid and buried in the collegiate chapel of St. Anthony's, near the high altar, where an epitaph by Nicolas Aylmer recorded his virtues, learning and love of country:--

Ordinis altus honor, fidei patriaeque honos, Pontificum merito laude perenne jubar.

One of the earliest works of Ó Maolconaire was a translation form Spanish into very pure Irish of a catechism known as "The Mirror of Christian Life" (Sgáthán an Chrábhaidh), printed at Louvain in 1626, but probably current in manuscript at an earlier date, both in Ireland and among the Irish troops in the Netherlands. This was composed, as he says himself, "out of charity for the souls of the Gael".

O'Maolconaire was a scholastic theologian, very learned especially in the writings of Augustine of Hippo. At Louvain he sat at the feet of Baius, and was also a friend of Jansenius (died 1638). He had, however, by his own efforts arrived independently at conclusions concerning the teaching of Augustine on grace and character of the sufferings of such unbaptized children. His "Peregrinus Jerichontinus, h. e. de natura humana feliciter instituta, infeliciter lapsa, miserabiter vulnerata, misericorditer restaurata" (ed. Thady MacNamara, Paris, 1641) treats of original sin, the grace of Christ, free will, etc., the "Pilgrim of Jerico" being human nature itself, the robber Satan, the good Samaritan, Our Lord. Hunter says that this edition was owing to Arnauld, and that the same ardent Jansenist is possibly the author of the (Paris, 1645) French version.

Conry wrote also other works expository of the teaching and opinions of Augustine, e.g. "de gratia Christi" (Paris, 1646); "De flagellis justorum" (Paris, 1644); "De Augustini sensu circa b. Mariae Virginis conceptionem" (Antwerp, 1619).

He was associated with Giolla Brighde Ó hEoghusa.
