A detailed history of Ireland from the O’Connell movement to Land League.
Timothy Daniel Sullivan (1827-1914) politician, journalist, and songwriter, was born in Bantry, Co. Cork. Sullivan came from a politically active family who during the 1830s and 1840s were involved in the temperance movement, the anti-tithe agitation, and the movement led by Daniel O’Connell. He later supported Home Government Association, and Home Rule League. He was editor of the highly influential ‘Speeches From The Dock’ (1867), reprinted many times during the following half-century.
