"Daniel O'Connell (1775-1847), The Liberator, was born at Carhan near Caherciveen, County Kerry to the O'Connells of Derrynane, a once-wealthy Roman Catholic family, which had been dispossessed of its lands. Among his uncles was Daniel Charles, Count O'Connell, an officer in the Irish Brigades in France. Under the patronage of his wealthy bachelor uncle Maurice ""Hunting Cap"" O'Connell, he studied at Douai in France. He became a barrister first at Lincoln's Inn, later transferring to Dublin's King's Inns. O'Connell devoted his life to the cause of Catholic Emancipation." 1872 CUSACK, M.F.
