Douglas Hyde (1860-1949), a descendant of a Protestant Anglo-Irish planter family, did much to further the causes of the Irish language and Irish nationalism. His work established him as a formidable leader of Irish opinion and he is regarded as a moving spirit behind the Irish intellectual revolution of the early twentieth century. ‘Ubhla de’n Chraoibh’ is probably the first book of modern poetry published in the Irish language.
