Overview

The story of the Manchester Martyrs, Allen, Larkin, and O'Brien. The single most important event in the development of Irish nationalism before the Easter Rising of 1916.

A thrilling account of the events surrounding the execution of three Fenians known as the Manchester Martyrs. Their execution during a turbulent period of Irish history in 1867 united the Irish people in a patriotic fervour and outrage not matched until 1916. The events surrounding the dramatic rescue of Fenian leaders (resulting in the Martyrs' execution) attracted worldwide attention and sparked anti-British protests across the globe. Their trial is one of the most infamous British court cases of the nineteenth century and their hanging was Britain's last public multiple execution.

In 2006 Bertie Ahern announced that the Irish government would grant the Martyrs a full state funeral and re-inter them in a grave at Glasnevin Cemetery. The plan foundered because their remains could not be located at that time. This book reveals the location of the remains and explains why they will never be returned to Ireland. About the author: Joseph O'Neill is an ex-history teacher and is now a full-time writer. He is the author of several books including 'Crime City: Manchester's Victorian Underworld'. He lives in Manchester and is of Irish extraction. He has written for leading British and Irish family history and genealogy publications including 'Ancestry', 'Family History Monthly', 'Practical Family History', 'Who Do You Think You Are?', 'Your Family Tree' and 'Irish Roots'.
