One of Lord Dunsany's ancestors was the Roman Catholic Saint Oliver Plunkett[?], the martyred Archbishop of Armagh.
The Countess of Fingall, wife of Dunsany's cousin, the Earl of Fingall[?], wrote a best-selling account of the life of the aristrocracy in Ireland in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, called Seventy Years Young.
H.P. Lovecraft was greatly impressed by Dunsany after seeing him on a speaking tour of the United States, and Lovecraft's early stories clearly show his influence.
