Butler’s Catechism

Drawn up in 1775 by Dr James Butler, Archbishop of Cashel, Ireland and used in various editions and with some slight changes throughout Ireland for a century. A modified edition of Butler’s Catechism was published in 1882 and became known as the Maynooth Catechism. A new revision was undertaken by a committee of priests, in 1892, under the direction of William Walsh, Archbishop of Dublin, Ireland but the revised catechism was never published.
