We mourn with the family of Eugene McCabe for this great loss. Please received our heartfelt condolences.
Eugene McCabe was born to Irish emigrants in Glasgow, Scotland, he moved with his family to Ireland in the early 1940s. He lived on a farm near Lackey Bridge, just outside Clones in County Monaghan. He was educated at Castleknock College.
His play King of the Castle caused a minor scandal when first shown in 1964 and was protested by the League of Decency. McCabe wrote his award-winning trilogy of television plays, consisting of Cancer, Heritage and Siege, because he felt he had to make a statement about the Troubles. His 1992 novel Death and Nightingales has been called by Irish writer Colm Tóibín “one of the great Irish masterpieces of the century” and a “classic of our times” by Kirkus Reviews. He defended fellow novelist Dermot Healy by reviewing a reviewer of his book, Eileen Battersby, in The Irish Times in 2011, using the Joycean cloacal invective “shite and onions”, causing considerable controversy in the Irish literary community.
He died on 27 August 2020, aged 90.
For every start of a journey, there must be an end. His journey has sadly come to an end on earth.
