Born in Waterford. Despite being almost deaf from Ménière’s disease, she wrote a number of plays for the Abbey Theatre. She had little success until 1930 but in the next six years she wrote a number of very successful plays. These include The Reapers, Temporal Powers, The King of Spain’s Daughter, Katie Roche and The Wild Goose. After  1937 she concentrated mostly on radio. Within a Marble City was considered to be her best piece in this genre. She is buried in County Waterford.
