Acerca de


Less than 100 years ago a form of slavery still persisted in parts of rural Ireland - the hiring fair system. Children as young as seven or eight were sold for fixed periods by their impoverished parents to farmers who worked them to the bone,treating them often as little more than cattle. Often worse. THE DONEGAL WOMAN is based on a true story of the author's own grandmother. Born to the poorest of Protestant farmers in the hills of Donegal, Margaret was hired out as a child, raped by her master, and then, pregnant, forced to marry another man many times her age. But Margaret survived in a silent world of her own, driven by her passionate determination to do right by her children. Reviving the tradition of three of Ulster's great radical writers, Peadar o' Donnell, Patrick MacGill and Sam Hannah Bell, this author, in his first novel, has captured the authentic voice of a woman of extraordinary spirit.

About the Author:

The Donegal Woman is based on the life of my grandmother. My mother told me her story before she herself died. I was born and lived the early years of my life in the same part of Ireland as my grandmother. I was also fortunate enough to live through the 1960's and experience the great struggles and changes that took place in Ireland and in this country. This helped me understand the struggles of my grandmother and the victories she achieved over her conditions both as a poor peasant and as a woman. I now live in Chicago. I am a retired organizer and activist and I am married to my companion Bonnie.
