    (March 30, 1880-September 18, 1964)
    Born in Dublin, Ireland
    Birth name was John Casey
    Wrote the plays 'The Shadow of a Gunman' (1923), 'Juno and the Paycock' (1924), 'The Plough and the Stars' (1926), 'The End of the Beginning' (1937), 'Red Roses For Me' (1942), 'Cock-a-Doodle Dandy' (1949), 'The Bishop's Bonfire' (1955) and 'The Drums of Father Ned' (1959)
    He Gaelicized his name to Sean O'Casey, and on some early poems went all out, using 'Sean O'Cathasaigh.'
    He supported the Soviet Union throughout his life, dismissing reports of Stalinist atrocities as propaganda.
    The debut of 'The Plough and the Stars' in Dublin set off a riot over the belief that the play insulted the people who died in the Easter Rebellion against Britain.
    He lived the rest of his life in exile in London.
    He was fired from an early newspaper job for not taking off his cap while collecting his wages.
    He was a founding member of the St. Laurence O'Toole Pipe Band and played on their hurling team.
    He was the first major Irish dramatist to write about Dublin's working class.
    He followed James Joyce as the second author to have a bridge over Dublin's River Liffey named after him.
