Product Description

Great Names in Irish History
A collection of fine cast figures

Parnell (1846-1891) was the son of a wealthy, land owning Protestant family. At twenty nine he decided to enter the political arena in support of Irish Home Rule in 1878. Within 2 years of being elected M.P. for County Dublin, he was made chairman of the Irish Political Party in Westminister. Parnell's speeches electrified Ireland.

He became a national hero for his support of the Land League, fighting to lessen the grip of the land-lords of their impoverished tenants. By 1880 this campaign had developed into a united demand for Home Rule and Parnell forced a vote on the issue in Westminister. It was narrowly defeated, but this in itself was proof enough that Home Rule was not an idle dream. This seed planted by Parnell took root in the hearts of young Irishmen and blossomed into the 1916 Rising and finally independence in 1922.

Parnell's fall came suddenly. In 1890 he was cited as co-respondant in a divorce case and found guilty. Through this he lost the leadership of the Irish party and despite a nationwide campaign his popularity slipped away. He died at the age of 45 on October 7th 1891.

This range of 54mm pewter figures are mounted on wooden plinths with metal plaques that have the embossed name of the figure. Plinth colour and design may vary without notice.
The figures are painted by experienced Irish artists and were designed by internationally famous miniature designer Chris Tubb.

Antique Finish means that the figure is polished first then undercoated in a black paint and that is skillfully rubbed off the highlights and left in the creases and depths so the miniature is brought into strong contrast. This is an excellant alternative to fully painted versions of the miniature.
