Born in Derry. He was not a man afraid to express his opinion or show his political disposition and as a result ended up in prison and losing several jobs. He worked mostly as a teacher. He wrote a number of poems but is perhaps remembered for his translations. His works include Reliques of Irish Jacobite Poetry and Irish Popular Songs. He is buried in Cork.
