The first full-length biography of one of the most celebrated Irish-language folk poets of the nineteenth century, one of the only poets of her generation to achieve name recognition after her death. The book contains new English-language translations of Mary O'Leary's entire poetic canon, including her best-known song, "The Battle of Keimaneigh" (Cath Cheim an Fhia), a stirring description of an armed clash in 1822 between militia troops and a secret society of Catholic tenant farmers known as the Whiteboys.
