About 1650 he was called to Rome and appointed primary professor of

wrote several works on theological subjects and a long Latin poem on
Prince Prosper Philip of Spain. Father Molloy is best known as the author

O’Flaherty, Roderic (Ó Flaithbheartaigh, Ruairí) : The Ogygia
The Ogygia Vindicated: Against the Objections of Sir George Mac Kenzie,
King’s Advocate for Scotland in the Reign of King James II. (A
Posthumous Work) by Roderic O’Flaherty, Esq; to which is annexed; An
Epistle from John Lynch D.D. to M.Boileau, G. Faulkner Dublin, and A
Disertaion by C. O’Connor, 1775, 1st edition. Contemporary brown calf,
bookplate of PJC Talbot, pp299.
Ó Flaithbheartaigh was the last de jure Lord of Iar Connacht, and the last
recognized chief of the O’Flaherty clan. He lost the greater part of his
ancestral estates to Cromwellian confiscations in the 1650s. The
remainder was stolen through deception, by his son’s father-in-law,
Richard Nimble Dick Martin of Ross. He died in poverty at Park, near
Bearna. He is perhaps most often associated with his elaborate history of
Ireland, Ogygia, published in 1685 as Ogygia: seu Rerum Hibernicarum
Chronologia & etc. Ogygia was immediately criticised for its scholarship
by Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh (1636–91), Dean of Faculty
(1682) at Aberdeen. The arguments about O’Flaherty’s continued well
into the 18th century, culminating in the present work, The Ogygia
Vindicated by the historian Charles O’Conor, in which O’Connor adds
explanatory footnotes to the original work.
