Dáibhí Ó Bruadair (1625-1698) was one of the most significant Irish language poets of the late seventeenth century Jacobite era. Ó Bruadair was an incredibly versatile poet, who often could write a wide scope of poetry in Irish, ranging from elegies to polemics to laments, and he is often regarded as one of the greatest poets to ever write in the Irish language. A three-part anthological volume of his poetry, Duanaire Dháibhidh Ui Bhruadair, would be published in 1910 by the Gaelic scholar and priest John MacErlean.
