John Devoy

John Devoy was a persevering, courageous man -- involved in every aspect of Irish revolutionary politics for over 60 years. He was born to a fiercely nationalist family in Kill, County Kildare, in 1842; and all his life he retained an unwavering passion for Irish freedom -- the first recorded incident of Devoy’s strong republican convictions being a beating he suffered at age 10 by a schoolmaster because John Devoy refused to sing ‘God Save the Queen’!
