Happy Birthday to Francis! On this day, 175 years ago, he was born in Bantry, Co. Cork. This article from Irish Central celebrates the day and outlines his many achievements. As does the wonderful presentation at the EPIC Irish Immigration Museum in Dublin, a section of which is pictured above. I am happy to report that copies of Chief O’Neill are available at the museum’s gift shop. What better way to celebrate the Chief’s birthday?
