Irish Catholic lawyer and politician, Daniel O'Connell, called "The Liberator", was a Member of Parliament in 1928 and Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1841.
An active freemason for some years, with the loss of his wife, Mary and growing political difficulties, O'Connell became more conservative and more devoted to the Church. On 19 April 1837 he wrote a letter to the London The Pilot denying that he was still a freemason.
