His birthplace and early life are in dispute. He was largely self-taught. He became a muslin weaver and wrote poetry. After a spell in Scotland he returned to Belfast and became editor of the Belfastman’s Journal and contributed poetry to other journals. He was later appointed an assistant librarian at Queen’s College, Belfast. His collected poems were published in 1878.      He is buried in Belfast.
