In J.W.Jones’ book “Rhyl, its town and its people” (1970) he says “I remember her (Mrs O’Grady) when she was a widow riding her pony-cart in the town.  They specialised in Irish plays such as “The Colleen Bawn”, “The Shaughraun” and “The Fenian”, and I believe that Mr O’Grady wrote some of the plays himself.”
