17201794
an Irish bookseller, poet and scribe. A native of Ulster, Ó Gormáin spent most of his later life in Dublin, where he was a member of the Tadhg Ó Neachtain's circle of scholars. He resided for a while in Belanagare transcribing material for Charles O'Conor (historian). He helped Charlotte Brooke in compiling and translating Reliques of Irish Poetry (1789). However, Peadar Ó Doirnín mocked him for a supposed lack of competence in English. His poems include Is aoibhinn duit a Éire, which Ó Gormáin wrote in 1763 for Hugh Percy, 1st Duke of Northumberland.
