Plunket, William Conyngham , D.D., 4th Baron Plunket, eldest son of John, 3rd Baron, was born in Dublin, 26 August, 1828; educated at Trinity College, Dublin, where he graduated in 1853; and took Holy Orders in 1857. He was Precentor of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, from 1869 to 1876, when he was elected Bishop of Meath. In 1884 he was translated to the Archdiocese of Dublin. His hymn “Our Lord Christ hath risen" (Easter), was first published in the Irish Church Hymnal, 1873, in 4 st. of 7 1.
