About: The Beathaisnéis Series comprises nine volumes of short Irish-language essays on the lives of important and not-so-important Irish-speaking men and women. There are over 1,700 people featured from 1560 to the present and we will revisit this excellent series to highlight other Irish speakers who have a connection to West Wicklow. The text of all 9 volumes has now been digitised and published as a fully-searchable database on the website Ainm.ie

This blog entry refers to Jeremiah Moynihan (Diarmuid Ó Muimhneacháin)  who was a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary between 1890-1920. He was born in 1866 in the parish of Ballyvourney in Cork into a family of well-known Irish poets. He retained this interest throughout his life and published pieces in various publications. A selection of his work appeared in book form in 1946 under the title ‘Bhéarsaí “Dhá Chích Dhanann”‘. After retiring he took a farm in Manor Kilbride but continued his love of Irish culture by teaching classes in Tallaght, Brittas and Newcastle. He is buried in Baltinglass.
