Narrandera was home to famed priest Father Patrick Hartigan (1878-1952) who published
his poetry under the nom de plume John O'Brien.
His best known poems include Said Hanrahan, Tangmalangaloo and Around the Boree Log.
Many of his books are available at Narrandera's Visitor Information Centre.
Narrandera's John O'Brien Festival has become an annual pilgrimage for many who appreciate
the great humanity and humour of "John O'Brien's" poetry.
