Maurice Walsh was an Irish novelist best known for the short story The Quiet Man which was later made into an Oscar-winning movie directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Walsh was born in 1879 in Ballydonoghue near Listowel, Co. Kerry, Ireland. He was one of Ireland's best-selling authors in the 1930s

Castle Gillian was originally to be called The Damsel Debonair or Waiting is Good Hunting or even A Man For Castle Gillian. To enthusiasts of Walsh’s earlier novels, the ingredients are familiar: the small man and the bully, two different love interests, some beguiling tinkers – and a Scotsman, Robin Morrison, who comes into the one famous Irish racing stable (so named as the title of the novel) now fallen on hard times – and starts events moving towards their climax.

The novel is in many ways the culmination of years of writing reaching full maturity that started with The Key Above The Door. The characters are all exquisitely drawn and fleshed out and the writing effortless in conveying Walsh’s unique commentary on an Ireland fast disappearing in the aftermath of W.W.II.
