Fenians!!!

150 years ago today, the Fenian Rising commenced.
Here’s an interview with the late historian Shane Kenna

Dr Kenna, who recently  died aged 33, from stomach cancer, was one of the foremost authorities on the Fenian movement.

Here he talks about John Devoy whose activities as an Irish Revolutionary spanned the Fenian and 1916 Risings. Devoy even met Eamonn De Valera, 1st President of the Irish Republic in New York!

 

Seems the right time to remind you all of our Phoenix Rising Trilogy on Fenianism
