A List of Works of Frank O’Connor

A step towards a more complete bibliography



There have been previous efforts to create a bibliography of the works of Frank O’Connor. Notable among these are the 1969 ‘Towards a Bibliography of Frank O’Connor’s Writing’ by Maurice Sheehy published in Michael / Frank: Studies on Frank O’Connor and the work of Professor Ruth Sherry, left incomplete by her death, held by University College Cork since 2008. I hope this ‘List of Works’ will encourage others to take a refreshed look at O’Connor’s works.


The list is compiled from a set of preliminary files I assembled from a range of printed resources and online tools and is aggregated into a single html page. It is hoped that the material can be emended and extended over time and eventually it can become integrated into a suitably flexible database.


The list is simplified in its present form. The files may contain additional data on particular works that are not reflected in the presentation. Please do not consider the ‘List’ as being authoritative in any way: At this stage there are likely to be errors introduced by the data handling.


The data display reflects my internal use of several abbreviations for referencing purposes. The most common of these are:

A more complete list of sources used is included with the list.
