Literature

Literature broadly covers written works with artistic merit; books and writings on subjects; other printed matter … and much more.

There is no shortage of literature related to Aghabullogue parish.

The family of Standish James O’Grady (‘The father of Celtic Revivalism’ and influencer of George A.E. Russell, W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory) lived here. So did Mícheál Ó Murchú (‘An Gabha Gaelach’), a former President of Conradh na Gaeilge. As did Johnny Tom Gleeson from Glounaglogh in Rylane, the composer of ‘The Bould Thady Quill’.
