Amanda McKittrick Ros 1860-1939

Born in Drumaness, County Down. She is known as “the world’s worst writer”. Her novels and poetry include Irene Iddesleigh, Delina Delaney, Helen Huddleson, St Scandalbags  and Fumes of Formation. Her idiosyncratic writing attracted the likes of Aldous Huxley, Louis MacNeice and Mark Twain and clubs sprang up in Oxford, Cambridge, London and even America to enjoy her writing. She wrote scathingly of lawyers and critics. She is buried in County Down.
