Stephen Brown, Ireland in Fiction [Pt. I] (Dublin: Maunsel 1919), cites James F McKeon, son of T. McKeon of Anagharah, Co. Armagh, b. Borrisoleigh, 1858; Superviser of Inland Revenue; author of Ormond Idylls (1901), eight Killarney sketches, pathetic and sad; also many poems, some in volume form. ERR, evident from reference to Inland Revenue in ODNB [supra] and this entry that the two are being confused unless the latter is also a descendent of the former and the post hereditary.
Brian McKenna, Irish Literature, 1800-1875: A Guide to Information Sources (Detroit: Gale Research Co. 1978), refers to D. J. ODonoghue, Poets of Ireland (1912) and an obit. in Northern Whig (24 April 1889) that speaks of one of the oldest contribs. to the political column [and writer of poems] numbers of which were beyond the ordinary range of fugitive poetry. No refs to fiction.
