Blessed Patrick O' Loughran was a diocesan priest who was hanged drawn and quartered in 1612 AD at Dublin. He was a native of Tyrone and spent time in Belgium where he ministered as a chaplain to exiled Irish noblemen. He was hanged, drawn and quartered together with Blessed Conor O' Devany. Fr. Patrick was executed first apparently and asked his bishop companion to pray for him. This occurred on 1 February 1612. Both men had been imprisoned in Dublin Castle and were executed on George's Hill. It is believed their relics were buried in St. Kevin's churchyard at Camden Row. His feast day is June 20.
