Later publications

Irish-related publications

Guiney’s final collection of poetry included some tributes to Ireland. Guiney was excited when Sir William Hadow, British educational reformer and musicologist at Worcester College, Oxford, set her “Irish Peasant Song” poem to music, bringing it to a wider audience.

The Recusants

Guiney spent the last twenty years of her life in England, much of it devoted to gathering information about recusant poets. She died before she could complete her intended book on the subject, but her collaborator, Geoffrey Bliss, SJ, edited and expanded her notes for publication in 1938.
