Padraic Colum

Padraic Colum (1881–1972) was born in Longford, Ireland, and typifies the best of the early twentieth-century renaissance of Irish literary. His books for children have delighted several generations, and they are as welcome today as they were when first published. For his contribution to children’s literature, in 1961 he was awarded the Regina Medal by the Catholic Literary Association.
