Born at Ballydonoghue, County Kerry. He worked for 20 years in the Customs and Excise service in Scotland before returning to Ireland after the establishment of the State. It was then that he began to devote himself to writing. He wrote many books and short stories, one of which, The Quiet Man, was made into a well-known film. His other works include: The Key Above the Door, While Rivers Run, Blackcock’s Feather, Son of the Sword Maker, Danger Under the Moon and A Strange Woman’s Daughter. He is buried in County Dublin.
