Irish Literature Companion

Farrell, Michael (1899-1962), Novelist. Born in Carlow, he studied medicine at UCD but spent some time in prison during the Anglo-Irish War for possession of illegal documents. He went to the Belgian Congo, returning to Ireland in the early 1930s, abandoning medical studies for broadcasting.

He became the amateur drama correspondent for The Bell. He is remembered for a novel, Thy Tears Might Cease (1963), a long work which attained mythic status in Dublin literary circles during composition and was edited by Monk Gibbon after his death.
