Poet, novelist, and editor, born Douth Castle, Drogheda, Ireland, June 28, 1844; died Hull, Massachusetts, August 10, 1890. He attended the National School, conducted by his father. After enlisting in the Tenth Hussars, he took part in the Fenian movement, but was betrayed and sent to Australia; whence in 1869, he escaped and found his way to Boston, where he became editor and part proprietor of the Pilot from 1870 until his death. For 20 years he was an invaluable factor in Catholic progress in America. His works include four volumes of poems: Moondyne, a powerful novel based on convict life in Australia; A Story from the Underworld (1879), a story of penal life, and The Irish Question (1886); he also edited The Poetry and Songs of Ireland (1889). His daughter, Elizabeth Boyle O'Reilly, wrote How France Built Her Cathedrals, New York, 1921.
