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.

Until World War II, France was on the same time zone as London. After occupying the country in 1940, Germany forced France to conform with Berlin time, and this change has never been canceled.
