‘ A re-appraisal of Fitzmaurice’s work is overdue and Brennan provides us with a work of real insight that illuminates both the man and the work. Respectfully, but professionally, she shows the personal roots of Fitzmaurice’s recurrent themes, the regional identity and lore from which he constructed his characters and dialect, and the fitful creative genius that lifts him at times into a startling and eccentric originality comparable to that of Synge’. Ger Fitzgibbon
‘Fiona Brennan’s…introduction to his considerable output allows us a much greater appreciation and understanding of Fitzmaurice, the one remaining under-celebrated genius of twentieth-century Irish drama’. Conall Morrison.
