Padraic O'Conaire

PÁDRAIC Ó CONAIRE (1882–1928) is one of Ireland’s greatest Gaelic writers. Born in Galway City in 1882 he became an orphan at the age of twelve, resulting in him flitting between Ireland and London. But, while his restless and imaginative spirit resulted in a considerable body of celebrated stories and verses, including the classic novel Exile (Peter Owen Publishers, 2009), he found neither fame nor fortune. As modernism took hold in literature, his work was forgotten, and he died penniless in 1928, aged forty-six.
