Biographical notes:

Blanaid Salkeld was born in India (now Pakistan) and raised in Ireland. After her marriage in England, she returned to Ireland and joined the Abbey Theatre's second company. She appeared in numerous productions, under the stage name Nell Byrne. She also wrote a number of verse plays, unpublished and largely unperformed, and published numerous poems in various journals. As a poet, she was a gifted amateur, employing an odd sense of punctuation and rhythm. Her son Cecil became an artist.
