Hyde was born in Castlerea in County Roscommon, where his father, Arthur Hyde, was the local Church of Ireland rector, and raised in neighbouring Frenchpark.
Hyde himself however felt uncomfortable at the growing politicisation of his movement (which had been infiltrated by the Irish Republican Brotherhood, just like the Irish Volunteers and the Gaelic Athletic Association) and resigned the presidency in 1915; he was replaced by the radical political activist and Irish-language teacher, Patrick Pearse (1879-1916).
Hyde's recitation of the Presidential Declaration of Office in his native Roscommon Irish dialect, remains one of the few recordings of a dialect that has long disappeared and of which Hyde himself was one of the last users.
