The Fenians – colossus of Irish History. Kilmainham Tale 3

The Fenians bestrode Irish history like a Colossus – carrying the torches of Liberty and Equality through the second half of the 19th century until, eventually yielding them to those who began the final, successful push in 1916..

Starting as two separate organisations, The Irish Revolutionary Brotherhood (IRB) in Ireland and the Fenian Brotherhood in America, the Fenians’ influence cast a long shadow over the history not only of Ireland but also of England and America.

This story is one of international intrigue, science-based terrorism, a Diaspora reclaiming its birthright. And yet, despite huge support, the Fenians failed, only increasing English paranoia about rebel Ireland, and discomfiting the United States with their abortive invasion of Canada, many ending up in jail (including Kilmainham Gaol) or exile.
