John McGahern

Picture of John McGahern

John McGahern was born in County Leitrim, Ireland on November 12, 1934. He died in Dublin's Mater Private Hospital on March 30, 2006. McGahern started teaching at Scoil Eoin Baiste but was subsequently dismissed after his second novel The Dark was published. This was because of the pornographic nature of the book. This forced him to leave Ireland and like so many before him, work at various jobs in Britain. The Barracks is McGahern's first novel.
