Thomas Francis Meagher Poster

€9.99 Regular Price

Watercolour print. Thomas Francis Meagher encapsulates the fenian tradition of Waterford. On 7 March 1848 he would fly an Irish tricolour for the first time from the Wolf Tone Confederate Club at 33 The Mall, a tricolour that would eventually become the national flag of Ireland. Having taken part in the failed Young Ireland Rebellion in 1848, Meagher was exiled, but he would later become a Brigadier-General in the US Army during the American Civil War. His gallant Irish Brigade fought with distinction throughout the war and his legacy in Waterford remains to this day.
