Daniel O'Connell

The great 'Liberator' began his adult life as an ambitious young lawyer, a Deist and a freemason. Some account of Dublin freemasonry for Catholics is given in the 'Ascendancy' chapter of Rutherfurd's second Irish book. But the main account of O'Connell - the man himself, his political campaign, his family and his cousin the political fixer - are given in the 'Famine' chapter.

John Milton, best known as the author of the interminable Paradise Lost, was also capable of writing short poems - one of the loveliest being, "Song on May Morning". Look it up!
