SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Edmund O'Reilly (bishop)

Edmund O'Reilly was an Irish prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as the Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland from 1657 to 1669, his father was Gearoid O'Reilly. Edmund's pedigree is preserved in the Royal Irish Academy, he was a descendant of the O'Raghallaigh chiefs of East Breifne and was born in Dublin on 3 January 1598. Edmund was educated in Dublin and ordained there in 1629. After ordination he studied at the Catholic University of Leuven, where he held the position of prefect of the college of Irish Secular Ecclesiastics. In 1640 he was appointed vicar-general. In 1642 the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, Thomas Fleming, having been appointed on the Supreme Council of the Confederate Catholics, transferred his residence to Kilkenny and until 1648 O'Reilly administered the Archdiocese of Dublin. With the triumph of the Puritans he was imprisoned and his deposition was taken on the 8th e 1652. In 1653, ordered to quit the country, he took refuge at the Irish College of Lisle where he was notified of his appointment to the See of Armagh, shortly after consecrated at Brussels.

Ireland was a dangerous place for ecclesiastics, not until 1658 did he attempt to visit his diocese. Once more ordered to quit the country, he returned to France, but in the following year went to Ireland, this time directly from France, for the next two years exercised his ministry. Accused of favouring the Puritans and of being an enemy of the Stuarts, he was ordered by the pope to quit Ireland. At Rome he was able to vindicate himself, but he was not allowed to return to Ireland by the English authorities until 1665, only in the hope that he would favour the Remonstrance of Peter Valesius Walsh. O'Reilly, like the great majority of the Irish bishops and priests, rejected it, nor could the entreaties of Walsh or the threats of James Butler, 1st Duke of Ormonde change him. In consequence he was imprisoned by Ormonde, when released, driven from the kingdom, he spent the remaining years of his life in France, chiefly concerned with the care of the Irish colleges there. He died at Saumur, France on 8 March 1669 and was buried in the Church of Notre Dame des Ardilliers at Saumur on St. Patrick's Day 17 March 1669.

Lake Sherburne Dam

Lake Sherburne Dam is a 107-foot high compacted earthfill dam built between 1914 and 1921 built just outside the boundary of Glacier National Park, its reservoir extending into the park. The dam impounds Swiftcurrent Creek. Water stored in Lake Sherburne is released to flow down Swiftcurrent Creek to the St. Mary River, from which it is diverted to the Milk River, flowing through Canada for 216 miles before returning to the United States. Use of these waters is governed by the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909. Water from the Milk River is used for irrigation in north central Montana; the principal storage facility for the Milk River Project was intended to be a dam on the St. Mary Lakes, but no suitable damsite could be found; the Sherburne Lakes in Swiftcurrent Valley were selected as an alternate site, with work beginning in 1914. Building material was borrowed from the upper end of the Sherburne Lakes. In order to expedite transportation of materials, a small tug boat and several barges were purchased for $1900 and hauled overland from Seattle to the project site.

Work continued through 1915 and 1916. Swiftcurrent Creek was diverted through the dam's outlet works in April 1916. Work was hampered by delays from spring flooding; the outlet tower and gatehouse were built in 1917, together with the spillway. In October observations indicated that the spillway was being displaced by a slide originating in a hill to the north of the spillway. Drainage of lakes above the slide did not cure the problem. Work on the dam and its control works continued through 1918. Water storage began in 1919; the spillway walls and floor were built of wood timbers to allow for movement. Work was complete in 1921; as built, Lake Sherburne impounded 66,100 acre feet behind the 94-foot dam. In 1960 the original spillway at the north end of the dam was filled in, victim of continuing slide activity, a new spillway was built, using a circular overflow of the "morning glory" type out in the lake, discharging into the lower portion of the outlet works; the dam's crest was raised 20 feet to prevent overtopping during the projected maximum flood condition.

A wall, 24 feet high, was built on top of the dam using interlocking concrete units set 24 feet apart, with the space between filled with compacted earth, the first example of this technique to be used by the Bureau of Reclamation. The outlet spillway were raised at this time. No minimum water release agreement applies to discharges from Lake Sherburne, with no effective flow in the creek from November through February.
