About Daniel O'Connell Exhibition

Daniel O'Connell Exhibition in May 2010 - December 2011.

Currently housed in the Milestone Gallery, this interactive exhibition on Glasnevin's founder Daniel O'Connell offers a unique insight into his life and achievements.

Daniel O'Connell was Ireland's predominant political leader in the first half of the nineteenth century, championing the cause of the Catholic tenants and small-landholders. 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.

As member of the British Parliament he was associated with many causes other than those directly related to Ireland. These included slavery in the West Indies and the US, and discrimination against Jewish people and others, issues nowadays categorised as 'Human Rights'.
