Publisher Description

This is an illustrated biography of Michael Davitt (1846-1906), who was one of the most beloved and respected personalities in Irish history. He was immortalized as the "Father of the Land League" and was also a respected international journalist, author, supporter of Home Rule and Member of Parliament. Davitt loved America and was a frequent visitor. He married Mary Jane Yore, an Irish-American from Oakland, California. His family settled in Pennsylvania. His father is buried in Scranton and his mother is buried in Manayunk, Philadelphia. Davitt's legacy to Ireland was immense: a country almost free of the landlord ascendancy class, occupying-ownership of the land, a foundation for the development of an independent, inclusive, democratic State, and a wonderful role model for patriotic public service. Widely acknowledged as a hero in Ireland long before his death, Michael Davitt has a secure place in the history of his country and is rightly seen as one of its greatest patriots.
