Fearghal Og Mac an Bhaird (c.1550 - c.1620):
Poet


Fearghal Og Mac an Bhaird was probably born in Donegal, a member of the great bardic family. He worked under the patronage of Turlough Luineach O'Neill. He wrote many political poems, and it was probably these which caused his exile to Scotland, where he wrote a great deal of verse expressing his misery. He went from Scotland to Europe and appealed for sanctuary in Louvain.
