Maura Laverty (née Kelly; 1907 – July 26, 1966) was an author, journalist and broadcaster known for her work on Irish soap opera Tolka Row. She published several novels, short stories and critical pieces throughout her career.

Born in Rathangan, County Kildare in Ireland, Laverty was educated at Brigidine Convent, Carlow, where she studied teacher-training. She later moved to Spain, taking up the position of governess and later secretary to Princess Bibesco and eventually becoming a foreign correspondent based within Madrid. Laverty returned to Ireland for the remainder of her career and worked as a journalist and broadcaster in Dublin. Her first novel Never No More was published in 1942 and based in Co. Kildare, drawing heavily on personal experiences during her time in Derrymore House. Laverty would follow this with such works as Touched by the Thorn (1943) and Alone We Embark (1943).
She is well known as the writer of RTÉ‘s Tolka Row, the station’s first soap opera that ran between 1964–68, itself largely an adaptation of her play Liffey Lane. Laverty also wrote numerous children’s stories including The Cottage in the Bog (1946) and The Green Orchard (1949). (Wikipedia)
