Armstrong, The Rev. Joseph

The rector at Ballindine, who helped Lord Ballindine to make his peace with Lord Cashel, and to drive Barry Lynch out of the country. Sometimes called “George.”

"His children were helpless, uneducated, and improvident; his wife was nearly worn out with the labours of bringing them forth and afterwards catering for them; and a great portion of his own life was taken up in a hard battle with tradesmen and title-payers, creditors, and debtors".- The Kellys and the O'Kellys
