Thomas Moore, whose name will ever be associated with the poetry and music of his country, was born on the 28th of May, 1779, at No. 12, Aungier Street, Dublin, where his father kept a small wine store. At a very early age he was sent to a school kept by a man named Malone, who seemed to possess, from Moore's own account of him, but little aptitude for teaching. When he was old enough it was determined that he should go to the best school in Dublin - the Grammar School of Samuel Whyte, who had been the early instructor of the celebrated Brinsley Sheridan There is little doubt but that Moore's genius first became developed under the fostering care of this master, who had warmly been devoted to the drama and those connected with it, throughout his life. Indeed, it was part of his occupation to prepare persons who intended the stage as their profession. Moore relates that when he first began to attend the school, Mr. Whyte encouraged a taste for acting among his pupils. When only about eleven years old, young Moore took part in some of the school-plays, and as he remarks, a taste for acting soon educed his talents for music and poetry.

His father had chosen for him the profession of the law. In 1793, the disabilities of the Catholics, to whom Moore belonged were removed, and in 1794 he entered the University of Dublin. In the same year his attempts at versification were first published in the form of a translation of one of the Odes of Anacreon. In 1798 or 1799, he took his degree of B.A. Early in 1799 he left the University, while yet in his nineteenth year, and went to London, as he states, "with the two, not very congenial objects, of keeping my terms at the Middle Temple, and publishing by subscription, my translation of Anacreon." In 1803, Moore had the nominal treasureship of Bermuda conferred on him, but the duties of the office he confided to a deputy, and Moore on his return home passed through the United States, and to this circumstance we are indebted for the well-known "Canadian Boat Song." The publication of the volume of "Odes and Epistles" took place after his arrival in England, in 1806. This visit to Bermuda gave him the materials for his "Poems relating to America."

In 1807, Moore had commenced his celebrated "Irish Melodies," a work on which at least his public and permanent fame largely depends. The last of the Series were published 1834. To criticise them would be superfluous. They bear a strong evidence of Moore's love for his country, and at the same time express in the most beautiful language some of the most cherished sentiments of the heart.

He had now become well-known in the higher classes of society, and the brilliancy of his wit, the geniality of his character, and the conviviality of his disposition, made him a coveted guest even at the table of royalty.
