Judged by the law of England, I know this crime entails upon me the penalty of death but the history of Ireland explains that crime and justifies it.Thomas Francis Meagher
I now bid farewell to the country of my birth - of my passions - of my death a country whose misfortunes have invoked my sympathies - whose factions I sought to quell - whose intelligence I prompted to a lofty aim - whose freedom has been my fatal dream.Thomas Francis Meagher
