Aindrias MacCraith 1710-1795

Born in County Limerick. He was a poet and wandering minstrel known as An Mangaire Súgach – The Wandering Peddlar. He was one of the leading poets of the Maigue school. Like many of these Gaelic poets, they supported the Jacobean cause and got themselves into trouble with women and were forced to leave the neighbourhood. One of his most famous works was the eulogy to his fellow poet Seán Ó Tuama. He is buried in County Limerick.
