From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Donlevy, Andrew, D.D., LL.D., was born in 1694, probably in the County of Sligo. In 1710 he repaired to Paris, and studied there in the Irish College, of which he ultimately rose to be Prefect. In 1742 he published at Paris the Catechism of Christian Doctrine, a work still in extensive circulation. The Irish type employed is peculiar to the Parisian publications, and is that used in MacCurtin's Irish Dictionary. He died some time after 1761.

Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
