Diarmid and Grania, a play in three acts, by George Moore and W.B. Yeats., 1900.

First performed October 21, 1901 at the Gaiety Theatre, Bullin by the F. R. Benson Company at the request of the Irish Literary Theatre. First published in The Dublin magazine, April-June, 1951. Published also in the variorum edition of the plays of W.B. Yeats, edited by Russell K. Alspach, New York (Macmillan, 1966).. The Introductory note to the first printed text, written by William Becker, states:
The few complete typescripts used by the actors disappeared, leaving only a stack of haphazard manuscript notes and incomplete drafts among Yeats' private papers. Thus until the discovery of the typescript on which the present version is based, the play was commonly thought to be lost.
