Olivia Knight was born in Rathbawn, Castlebar. Her father may been an engineer and spent some time in Australia. She had a sister, Deborah, I think. Olivia was a regular contributor to Gavan Duffy's Newspaper, 'The Nation.' Wrote under the pen-name of 'Thomaseen.' I have a feeling that she was aunt of Michael Treacy who worked in Langans in Ellison Street. I think Olivia's story was written in the Parish Magazine some years ago. Ivor Hamrock in the County Library could be of assistance. Very helpful in matters like this.
