Description:

Rare colonial engraving of the celebration of the Irishman Daniel O’Connell.

O’Connell often referred to as The Liberator or The Emancipator, was an Irish political leader who campaigned for Catholic emancipation,including the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years and repeal of the Acts of Union which combined Great Britain and Ireland. Throughout his career in Irish politics, O’Connell was able to gain a large following among the Irish masses in support of him and his Catholic Association. O’Connell’s main strategy was one of political reformism, working within the parliamentary structures of the British state in Ireland and forming an alliance of convenience with the Whigs.
