Description

Daniel O’Connell was a huge celebrity in his time. As a brilliant young lawyer, he became famous for saving people from hanging. He fought against slavery and every kind of oppression, but all by peaceful means though he did kill a man in a duel. He then became known as The Liberator as he fought for the Catholics in Ireland who had hardly any rights at the time. Daniel soon became a folk hero, adored by the Irish people who used to tell stories about him around their firesides though only half of them were true! Little wonder then that he was known as King Dan! This is the story of one of the most remarkable men who ever lived.
