Essays By An Irish Rebel. Revolution, Politics and Culture
Liam Ó Briain (1888-1974)was a native of Dublin’s East Wall area and a neighbour of Sean O’Casey. In Irish articles in Comhar and Feasta – now translated - he wrote of his own experiences during the War of Independence at the hands of the Tans and Auxiliaries at this time of terror in Galway in 1920-21 when destructive military raids and cold-blooded murders were part of daily life.

This Dubliner made his mark in no uncertain terms on the cultural and educational landscapes of both Galway and Dublin at a national level. He was a founder member, actor and a director of the Irish Language Theatre An Taibhdhearc for 10 years from 1928. He translated French plays into Irish for the Taibhdhearc and for Galway schools and he was also a lifetime member of Conradh na Gaeilge and loved the Irish language. He writes about his summer sojourn in Paris and Italy in 1920, not long after the Great War, when his good friend Michael Collins persuaded him to carry a message directing that guns be sent to Ireland from Italy to aid the Irish! On his return to Galway he was again interned in Galway gaol and the Curragh.

These essays include profiles of friends who were to become notable figures in modern Irish history. Friends like Eoin Mac Néill, Pádraic Ó Conaire, Seán T. O’Kelly, Piaras Béaslaí, Pádraig de Brún and W.T. Cosgrave. The 25 essays end with a learned lecture in Irish by Liam on Radio Eireann at Christmas 1957, on the Irish in the Chansons de Geste,.,
