Father Coghlan

 

 

 

Father Cornelius Dominic Coghlan was a member of the Dominican Order, born in Galway in Ireland, and arrived in Sydney when in his early fifties.

The Brisbane Water District was his first mission in 1843.

On the Island he found time to grow bananas until the plantation was wiped out by a gale in 1898 - the same gale which sank the SS Maitland (this wreck residing at Maitland Bay just north of Kilcare).

Although he referred to the Island as "my island", it is believed he gave it its current name - St Huberts Island.
