A good impression of this handsome portrait of Daniel O'Connell (1775 – 1847). Known as 'The Liberator', or 'The Emancipator', he was an Irish political leader in the first half of the nineteenth century. He campaigned for Catholic Emancipation - the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years - and Repeal of the Union between Ireland and Great Britain.
