The biography was written by noted professor and Irish-language expert, Seán Ó Coileáin.
Seán Ó Ríordáin was one of the most important Irish-language poets of the twentieth century. Born in Ballyvourney, Co. Cork, he later moved to Inniscarra on the outskirts of Cork city. His early life was laced with tragedy, such as the death of his father from tuberculosis and the subsequent loss of his mother, which affected him deeply. In a cruel twist of fate, Ó Ríordáin was later struck down with the same condition that killed his father. As a result, he was in poor health for much of his adult life.
Through all this, Ó Ríordáin found a refuge in writing and started on his journey to becoming a renowned poet. In this exhaustive and wide-ranging literary biography, which offers frequent glimpses into his famed diaries as well as his poems and other writings, we are provided with a vivid portrait of both Ó Ríordáin the man and Ó Ríordáin the poet.
