Born in Bandon, Co. Cork in 1927, Risteárd Ó Glaisne was educated at Bandon Grammar School and Trinity College, Dublin. He is best known in Irish-speaking circles for his books on such diverse subjects as Dr Ian Paisley, Dr Conor Cruise O'Brien, Cardinal Thomás O Fiaich and Irish Methodism. One of his most remarkable achievments as founder-editor was the successful launch in 1958 of Focus, an inter-denominational Protestant review. Amongst his papers are letters from writers such as Máirtín Ó Chadhain, Ciarán Ó Nualláin, Seán Ó Ríordáin, Gabriel Rosenstock and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill; material relating to Ó Glaisne's works, published and unpublished; and material concerning organisations with whom Ó Glaisne was involved between the early 1940s and 2003, such as Moral Re-Armament, the Anti-Apartheid movement and Amnesty.
