MacDonagh was well versed in literature, his enthusiasm and erudition earning him a position in the English department at University College Dublin. His play ‘When the Dawn is Come’ was produced at the Abbey theatre. He was appointed director of training for the Irish Volunteers in 1914, later joining the I. R. B. MacDonagh was appointed to the I. R. B. military committee in 1916.
