Caricature of Robert Lynd, 1928

Robert Wilson Lynd (1879-1949) was one of the key albeit rare Ulster Protestant nationalist writers throughout the early 20th century. He became involved in the Gaelic League and was an advocate of the fledging Sinn Fein movement headed by Arthur Griffith, becoming fluent in Irish and often writing under his Irish-language name, Roibéard Ó Floinn.
