Pádraig Ó Héigeartaigh, Irish poet, 1871-1936.

A native of County Kerry, Ó Héigeartaigh emigrated to Springfield, Massachusetts, as a child. He commemorated the death of his son with the poem My Sorrow, Donnchadh, which was published around 1900 in An Claidheamh Soluis, apparently translated by Padraig Pearse.
