From a staunchly Republican family, Micheál o’Hanrahan was instrumental in setting up the first branch of the Gaelic League in Carlow.

Poblachtaigh tríd is tríd a bhí i muintir Uí Annracháin agus bhí páirt lárnach ag Micheál i mbunú na chéad chraoibhe de Chonradh na Gaeilge i gCeatharlach.

After moving to Dublin, he played important roles in both Sinn Fein and the Irish Volunteers. As quartermaster of the volunteers, he was responsible for the procurement of many of the arms used in the Easter Rising. Micheál o’Hanrahan was also a journalist and novelist whose development was cut short by his execution in 1916. The Carlow Historical & Archaeological Society have invited Dr. Conor Kostick, Micheál’s biographer to present a lecture on his life.

Bhog sé go Baile Átha Cliath agus ina dhiaidh sin rinne sé obair thábhachtach i Sinn Féin agus in Óglaigh na hÉireann. nuair a bhí sé ina mháistir ceathrún ar na hÓglaigh bhí sé freagrach as roinnt mhaith de na huirlisí troda a úsáideadh in Éirí Amach na Cásca a cheannach. Iriseoir agus úrscéalaí ab ea Micheál Ó hAnnracháin freisin agus chuir a lámhachadh in 1916 deireadh tobann leis an dá cheird sin. Tá Cumann Staire agus Seandálaíochta Cheatharlach tar éis cuireadh a thabhairt don Dr. Conor Kostick, beathaisnéisí Mhichíl, léacht a thabhairt faoina shaol.
