O'Connell, Daniel (1775 -1847)

Daniel O’Connell, barrister and a powerful orator, had won emancipation for Irish Catholics in 1829, and became the first Irish Catholic Member of the British Parliament. He afterwards sought the freedom of Ireland from British rule by peaceful means. He held rallies from 1843, which proved so popular that he was charged with disruption, fined and briefly imprisoned. He died at Genoa on his way to Rome.
