Emily Henrietta Hickey

Irish writer Emily Henrietta Hickey (1845-1924) was born in County Wexford. Hickey's early writing brought her some note as a narrative poet. She also wrote stories and criticism. Following her conversion to Roman Catholicism in 1901, Hickey's writing focused largely on religious themes.
