Born in south Kerry to a family which retained some of the remarkable features of the old Gaelic clans, O'Connell formed himself into the leader of his people. His tireless efforts to remove by constitutional means the last disabilities suffered by Catholics, found victory with emancipation in 1829 and though the goal of national independence eluded him, he started the process which enabled others to finish the job. Part of the Compact Irish History Series.
