Fr Brady was born in Killaune, County Cavan, in north central Ireland, and was the twin brother of Matthew, the youngest sons of a large family.

As a young man he emigrated to the U.S. and after a short time in New York City he entered St. Charles College in Ellicott, Maryland, where he graduated in 1899. The following year he entered the Paulist community. He made his profession in the community on December 14, 1904, and was ordained a Catholic priest on June 14, 1905, by Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Cusack of New York in the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle in New York City.

Shy and reserved by nature he struggled with his first assignment to the New York mission band but soon settled in. He was respected for his "genial and patient" manner.

Sickness slowed him in 1909-10 and, while hospitalized at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City for an appendectomy, he died suddenly at the age of 31 and after five years of priestly ministry.

Father Michael Smith, CSP, inscribed the following tribute to him in the Register of the Paulist Fathers: "Assigned to mission work -- after the timidity, partly temperamental and fully to be expected for a beginner, he soon settled down to effective good work and gave promise of a long, useful career. Genial and patient towards the people, companionable with his brethren, obedient towards superiors, his five years of ministry were filled with labors and merits -- "explevit tempora multa." The grace which enabled him to face the labors and hardships of a missionary life was not wanting in the supreme and rather sudden lapse into critical illness and death. Under medical advice he was operated for appendicitis in Roosevelt Hospital, and in the days of alternate hopes and fears, he was prayerful, calm and resigned; such indeed was his end that the Protestant nurse who attended him sought and received admission to the Church, as a direct consequence of his faith and example."
