In his day Daniel O’Connell was instantly recognisable to people, and among the myriad of satirical cartoons are often flattering portrayals. Though some of these are well known, the National Library of Ireland holds a unique collection including visual lampoons of O’Connell that he had gathered in his lifetime which this talk will showcase. It will also highlight how fundamental his political image was in British-Irish relations.
