From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pádraig Ó Siochfhradha (1883 – 19 November 1964) (Irish pronunciation: [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəɟ oː ʃʊˈxɾˠuː]) and his brother Mícheál Ó Siochfhradha were writers, teachers and Irish language storytellers, from County Kerry, Ireland.

Pádraig Ó Siochfhradha's most famous book, written under the pen-name An Seabhac (The Hawk), is the semi-autobiographical comedy Jimín Mháire Thaidhg, published in 1919,[1] which follows his childhood under the control of his powerful mother, Máire. He became an active organiser for the Irish Volunteers in 1913 and was imprisoned three times for his activities. He was a member of Seanad Éireann from 1946–48, 1951–54 and 1957–64, being nominated by the Taoiseach on each occasion.[2]
