O'Flaherty, Liam (1896-1927)


Liam O'Flaherty, novelist, was born on 28 August 1896 on Inishmore in the Aran Islands, Ireland. He was educated at University College, Dublin. After World War I, he travelled through the United States and Canada, paying his way by working as a labourer and clerk. He returned to Ireland in 1920 and helped to found the Irish Communist Party in 1922. Later that year he was forced to flee to England. His novel, The Informer (1925), about a man who betrays his friends, won the James Tait Black Prize in 1926. He also wrote Famine (1937) about the potato famine of the 1840s. He died in Dublin on 7 September 1984.
