Biography

Son of the famous Donegal writer Peadar Mac Fhionnlaoich (Cú Uladh), Conor McGinley was educated in St. Enda’s College Rathfarnham and was a member of E Company in the 4th Dublin Battalion of the Irish Volunteers. He was an architecture student in UCD when the Easter Rising broke out, and fought in the GPO alongside his brother Eunan. Following his release from internment in June 1917, MacGinley re-entered the Volunteers and participated in the War of Independence until his arrest in 1920. Interned until the end of the conflict, he went on to pursue a career as an architect.
