Daniel O'Connell (1775-1847), n.d.
Irish political leader Daniel O'Connell promoted Catholic political rights in the United Kingdom during the early 1800s. His work prompted the British government to pass the Catholic Emancipation Act in 1829, which removed civil restrictions on Catholics and allowed them to hold public office.
