George A. Birmingham *

a.k.a. James Owen Hannay

Author Code: IGAB

Born: Jul. 16, 1865 - Belfast, Northern Ireland

Died: Feb. 2, 1950 - London, England

Educated partly in England, Hannay received his higher education from the Divinity School of Trinity College, Dublin. After graduating in 1888, Hannay was ordained and began working as a curate for Delgany, a position he held until 1892. Being lowly paid, Hannay wrote a short story for which he was paid £10 and which gave him the confidence to write. He adopted the pseudonym of George A. Birmingham and in 1892 moved to Westport as its rector. On the advice of his wife, he published The Spirit and Origin of Monasticism in 1903, which achieved some financial success. In 1905, he published his first novel, The Seething Pot, a work which brought his Irish Nationalism to the fore. Indeed, many of Birmingham's novels were a blend of religious clashes between Catholics and Protestants and Nationalism and Unionism. Birmingham's first true financial success came with the best-selling Spanish Gold in 1908. In 1912, he supported a motion for Home Rule at the Church of Ireland synod. A prolific author, Birmingham produced sixty-one novels, twenty-eight works of non-fiction and some plays. Although his works diminished in readership after his death, there has been a revival in recent years. His works include The Wisdom of the Desert (1904), Hyacinth (1906), The Search Party (1909), The Major's Niece (1911), Irishmen All (1913), A Padre in France (1918), A Public Scandal (1922), The Gun-Runners (1925), Wild Justice (1930), Pleasant Places (1934), Daphne's Fishing (1937), Miss Maitland's Spy (1940), Poor Sir Edward (1943), Golden Apple (1947) and Two Scamps (1950).
