Gerald Griffin

Author Code: IGGR

Born: Dec. 12, 1803 - Limerick, Ireland

Died: Jun. 12, 1840 - Cork, Ireland

Griffin left Ireland in 1823 to move to London where he hoped to become a dramatist. He worked as a journalist and reporter and wrote sketches and reviews for literary gazettes. Convinced by his friend John Banim that drama would not be for him, he abandoned it and began writing stories. In 1827, he published Holland-Tide, a set of regional stories that was well-received. Suffering from ill health, he returned to Limerick that year, in time for his sister's funeral. He then moved to Dublin to live with his brother. He spent his time between Dublin and London for the next few years. In 1829, he published his most famous work, The Collegians, which was successful and provided him with sufficient income to continue writing. Griffin also wrote some poetry, although it was much less successful. By the late 1830s, Griffin was disillusioned and burned his manuscripts and joined the Christian Brothers order as Brother Joseph. In 1839, he transferred to the Order's house in Cork, where he taught school until the following year, when he contracted typhus fever and died. His other works include Tales of the Munster Festivals (1827), The Rivals (1829), Tracy's Ambition (1829), Tales of My Neighbourhood (1835), The Duke of Monmouth (1836), Tales of the Jury Room (1842 Posthumous) and Gisippus (1842 Posthumous).
