One of the most versatile and under-rated writers of the Irish literary movement. Raised in an orphanage, he was a friend of Arthur Griffith and wrote for ‘Sinn Fein’; after 1924 he lived in London. His poetry, children’s stories and political writing are all distinguished by their integrity and freshness of approach.
