The Fenian Rising 1867

#OnThisDay 1867 Fenian Risings erupt all over Ireland hoping to end British rule. 4000 in Cork, 1000 in Drogheda & even an attempt to take Dublin was made. The rebellions did not get off the ground as they were poorly armed, unorganised & infiltrated by spies. #Ireland #History
