Frank J. Hugh O'Donnell, Irish critic, playwright and Senator, 1894-1974.

O'Donnell was born at Milltown, County Galway in the late 1800's. He and his brother Patrick O'Donnell worked in the family business in Tuam before moving to Dublin to work in the clothing industry. He was a published critic of music, literature and theatrical performances, and wrote a weekly letter in the Gael, a weekly paper. He was also a playwright, having some of his works staged at the Abbey Theatre. Later in life he became a member of Seanad √Čireann where he promoted Irish arts and culture.

He bore almost the same name as a contemporary politician, Frank Hugh O'Donnell, also from County Galway.
