It was continued by John Kearney and Dr Nehemiah Donellan, and then finally completed by William O'Domhnuill (Daniel), Archbishop of Tuam. It was first printed in 1602. In the 19th century, increased scholarly awareness of the Irish language and a new enthusiasm for the promotion of the doctrines of the Reformed Church in the aftermath the 1801 Act of Union resulted in a British and Foreign Bible Society edition (1821) that included an Irish translation in an authentic Irish character.
