Irish-born poet, he moved to Montreal, Canada with his family at age 10. Trained as a physician, he published "'The Habitant and other French-Canadian poems' in November 1897. The collection was well received and he continued to turn out volumes of his poetry. Perhaps his most anthologized work is "The Wreck of the 'Julie Plante'", which he wrote in the late 1870s. In mourning after his son died in September 1904, he wrote "The Last Portage" a result of a dream on Christmas Eve that year.
He suffered a fatal cerebal hemorrhage on April 6, 1907 in Cobalt,Ontario, a week before his 53rd brthday.
