I am researching the Connemara Irish-language poet and songwriter Michael McSweeny (Micheal Mac Suibhne). I already have a webpage about him at http://www.irishmusicweb.ie/texts/suibhne.html
Hardiman's History of Galway describes him as a genius, but he has almost disappeared from current memory.
He wrote ""Peggy O'Hara's Wedding" in Irish, although John M Synge wrote about an English version he heard sung on the Aran Islands.
Any information would be appreciated.
