The Galtee Boy: A Fenian Prison Narrative

כריכה קדמית
University College Dublin Press, 2005 - 226 עמודים
This memoir is the most extensive surviving account of Cork Fenianism by a participant. John Sarsfield Casey, an activist who wrote letters to Fenian newspapers as 'The Galtee Boy', describes the round-up of Cork Fenians in 1865, their experiences on remand in Cork City Gaol, their trial in December 1865/January 1866 and their subsequent experiences of Irish and British prisons.
Casey's previously unpublished account portrays with humour and determination the harsh conditions endured by Fenian prisoners and their struggles to preserve their purpose and identity within a system designed to remake them as penitent convicts.
Biographies of people mentioned in the memoir and a summary of newspaper accounts of Casey's trial are given in appendices.
