Eochaidh O'Hussey (c.1570 - c.1630):
Poet


Eochaidh O'Hussey was an ollamh, and the last of the bards of the Maguires of Fermanagh. The winter campaign of 1599 to 1600 is the subject of his most famous poem. His poetry celebrates the escape of Hugh O'Donnell from Dublin Castle and praises the Earls of Tyrone and Tyrconnell. His manuscripts are preserved in the Royal Irish Academy.
