In the early-20th century, popular fiction in Ireland was greatly enlarged by a unique body of work from three priest-novelists - Canon Patrick Sheehan, Canon Joseph Guinan and Gerald O'Donovan.

The three priests were closely involved in the vibrant Catholic culture of this period and, writing deliberately for Irish Catholics, they showed a sympathy and preoccupation with Ireland. Their aim was to rescue the people from earlier Victorian cariactures, provide them with a literature of their own, and protect them from what they regarded as the baser influences of modern writing.

In this study, the author explores the lives of these three writers, examines the influences which impelled them to write as they did, and assesses the popular appeal of their work.
