Máirtín Ó Cadhain (Irish pronunciation: [ˈmˠaːɾʲtʲiːnʲ oː ˈkəinʲ]; 1906 – 18 October 1970) was one of the most prominent Irish language writers of the twentieth century. Perhaps best known for his 1949 work Cré na Cille, Ó Cadhain played a key role in bringing literary modernism to contemporary Irish language literature. Politically, he was an Irish nationalist and socialist, promoting the Athghabháil na hÉireann ("Re-Conquest of Ireland"), through Gaelic culture. He was a member of the post-Civil War Irish Republican Army with Brendan Behan during the Emergency.
