Ó Conaire Pádhraic
Pádraic Ó Conaire wrote realistic, even naturalistic, stories about the life of Irish emigrants in England about the turn of the century; he was also one of the first people ever to use Irish for journalism. His most important book is his only novel, Deoraíocht (Diaspora), which combines realism with absurd elements. He was to die in the nineteen twenties, not yet fifty years old. He was actually a civil servant, but became something of a mythical figure of the folklore.
