Irish playwright and poet who recreated traditional myth and folklore, especially in wonder plays and children's plays. She wrote more than 35 plays herself plus two in which she collaborated with her friend William Butler Yeats.
While visiting Nice with her family in 1879 she met Sir William Gregory. They married the following year when she was 28 and he, 63. Their only child, Robert was born in May 1881. Sir William was killed in wartime Italy, 1918, when his plane was shot down. The marriage was a happy one and their estate, Coole Park in Cort, Ireland, was beloved by Lady Gregory.
