His best-known works include the novel Tarry Flynn, and the poems "On Raglan Road" and "The Great Hunger". He is known for his accounts of Irish life through reference to the everyday and commonplace.

    Tarry Flynn examines the great hungers of a society with a stifled need not only to be loved, but also to love. It centres on an indictment of the Church’s complicity in the repression of individuals’ spirit and its characters’ schemes to gain advantages. Tin Whistle Song Book Tin Whistle Other Stuff Tarry Flynn lyrics by Johnny McEvoy. Is there a man that cares That I might be spared Such a life of drudgery Of digging clay Tossing cocks of hay Wishing all the day That somehow I could be free Chorus: O you are a rascal, Tarry Flynn You're writing poetry instead of digging drills Strolling around.
