Description   Irish writer Seán Ó Faoláin smoking a pipe in 1967. A similar picture to this was published in the RTÉ Guide on 13 October 1967 to publicise the Thomas Davis radio lecture.

O'Faolain fought on the Republican side in the Civil War and left Ireland in 1926 to teach abroad. He returned in 1932 as a writer, publishing novels and short stories. He also wrote biographies, notably 'The Great O'Neill' (1942) and his own autobiography 'Vive Moi!' (1964). He edited the 'Bell' literary journal between 1940 and 1946.
