Charles Graham, a native of Sligo, was the oldest of the Methodist evangelists who worked for a long time among the Irish peasantry from the beginning of the nineteenth century. Graham’s mission, along with the most colourful of Irish evangelists, Gideon Ousley, was to bring to the masses the gospel of personal revival and conversion, at an age when the Irish countryside was allegedly distinguished by “blasphemy, Sabbath-breaking and drunkenness ...Party spirit, pitched battles, sanguinary conflicts, nocturnal devastations and private murders.”
