Sean O'Casey - LIFE STORIES
 
 
3/30/1880     Sean O'Casey's Ireland
On this day in 1880 Sean O'Casey was born, in the working-class ghettos of Dublin that he would later make famous in such plays as The Plough and the Stars. O'Casey's six-volume autobiography is less-known, but Frank McCourt, who would cover the same sort of ground a half-century later, thought its realism a revelation and a welcome change to the Irish writers who "go on about farms and fairies and the mist that do be on the bog."
