Peadar Ua Laoghaire (1839-1920) was a Catholic priest and writer, regarded as one of the finest Irish-language writers of his generation and a key figure of the Gaelic Revival’s effort to create a modern literature in Irish. His most famous work, Séadna, was first serialised in the Gaelic Journal among other Irish-language magazines in 1894, and first published as a book in 1904. His other works include Niamh, published in 1907 and Mo Sgéal Féin, a 1915 personal autobiography. Ua Laoghaire was a contributor to various literary magazines, including An Claidheamh Soluis and The Leader.
