William Carleton

Author Code: IWCT

Born: Feb. 20, 1794 - Prillisk, County Tyrone, Ireland

Died: Jan. 30, 1869 - Sandford, County Dublin, Ireland

Educated at various local schools and at Donagh where, from 1814 to 1816, he received a basic classical education. Born a Roman Catholic, he converted to Protestantism when he was 19. He worked as a tutor for a time before moving to Dublin where he began to write and contribute to various journals. In 1830, he published Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry in two volumes, considered by many to be his finest work and one which established his reputation. During the 1830's and 1840's he was extremely prolific, producing more volumes of Irish tales and folklore. In spite of his great output, Carleton remained relatively poor. In 1848, he was award a pension of £200 a year by Lord John Russell. In his later years he drank to excess. His other works include Tubber Derg, or the Red Well (1833), Tales of Ireland (1834), Father Butler (1839), Fawn of Spring Vale (1841), The Black Prophet, a Tale of Irish Famine (1846), The Emigrants of Ahadarra(1847), Valentine McClutchy, the Irish Agent (1848), The Tithe Proctor (1849), Willy Reilly and His Dear Cooleen Bawn (1850) and Squanders of Castle Squander (1852).
