Ó Grianna, Séamus

Séamus Ó Grianna (Máire) was born in Rannafast in the Rosses of County Donegal. He wrote many novels and short stories about his native place which were treasured for their idioms and their picture of Donegal life at the turn of the century. His dislike for the nua-litriocht ensured that publication of his best work in paperback had to wait until after his death.
