Born near Portarlington, County Laois. He was a land agent who wrote an account of his experiences before, during and after the Famine in The Realities of Irish Life. The book was sympathetic to the agent and his portrayal of the peasants caused much anger in Ireland. He is buried in County Monaghan.

Further information, location and directions to the grave are to be found in "The End - An Illustrated Guide to the Graves of Irish Writers".  Click here to order a copy of this book
