Thomas Moore (Dublin, 28 de maio de 1779 – Bromham, 25 de fevereiro de 1852) foi um escritor, poeta e letrista irlandês famoso por suas melodias irlandesas. Sua configuração de versos em inglês para velhas melodias irlandesas marcou a transição na cultura popular irlandesa do irlandês para o inglês. Politicamente, Moore foi reconhecido na Inglaterra como escritor dos aristocráticos Whigs; na Irlanda, ele foi considerado um patriota católico. Casado com uma atriz protestante e aclamado como " Anacreon Moore " em homenagem ao clássico compositor grego de canções para beber e versos eróticos, Moore não professava piedade religiosa. Ainda assim, nas controvérsias que cercaram a Emancipação Católica Moore foi visto defendendo a tradição da Igreja na Irlanda contra protestantes evangelizadores e católicos leigos intransigentes. Trabalhos em prosa mais longos revelam simpatias mais radicais. A Vida e Morte de Lord Edward Fitzgerald descreve o líder da Irlanda Unida como um mártir pela causa da reforma democrática. Complementando Maria Edgeworth do Castelo Rackrent, Memoirs of Captain Rock  é uma saga, não da Anglo-Irlandesa proprietária de terras, mas de seus inquilinos exaustos conduzido para o semi-insurreição do " Whiteboyism". Hoje, no entanto, Moore é lembrado quase sozinho por suas melodias irlandesas (normalmente "O menino menestrel" e " A última rosa do verão ") ou, menos generosamente, pelo papel que ele teria desempenhado na perda das memórias de seu amigo Lord Byron.[1][2][3]
