James Warren Doyle (1786-1834), Irish Catholic Bishop. Ordained a priest in 1809, he taught logic at the Augustinian College, New Ross (1809-1816); was professor at Carlow College (1817-1819); ordained bishop in 1819. He was an active defender of the rights of the Irish Catholics both in print and in public.
"He established confraternities, temperance societies, and parish libraries, built churches and schools, conducted retreats, and ended many abuses which had survived the penal times. He also waged unsparing and incessant war on secret societies. He died a young, a martyr to faith and zeal." - E. A. D'Alton, Catholic Encyclopedia, (1907-1912).
