No. If he was a normal Irish Bishop of his time, he was just bigoted against all non-Irishmen. My grandfather, a German Catholic, had the misfortune to be born on St Patrick's Day in an Irish town in Iowa. He left the Church at the earliest opportunity because of the abuse he received at the hands of the Irish nuns. If an Irish child vomited, he got to clean it up because he was German!

Once the Irish began to be accepted, they wanted no competition whether it be Slav, German, Italian, etc.
