Poems by Aonghus of the Divinity


We know little about Aonghus Fionn Ó D‡laigh, known as Aonghus na Diagachta (ÔAonghus of the Divinity)'. He flourished in the late sixteenth century. Over fifty poems survive, mostly of a deeply religious nature. He had a school of poetry in Duhallow, Co. Cork, at a time — from 1530 onwards — when ordinances were being issued to destroy the native literary classes (“Yryshe minstrels, rymours, shannaghes & bardes”).
