Travel Tips for Cahersiveen

Daniel O'Connell Memorial Church of the Holy Cross

by grandmaR

under construction

Cahirciveen's most famous historic figure is undoubtedly Daniel O'Connell, who was born in the town on 6 August 1775.

While this tip was (as it still is) under construction, using information obtained from the internet I got the following comment from ReganBurnham

Daniel's body is NOT buried in Chairsiveen - it is buried in Glasnevin Cemetary after a huge funeral in Dublin. His heart was buried in Rome. Please refer to the many biographies and newspaper articles that report this. Sincerely, Regan O'Connell Burnham UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The respect of the people for Daniel O'Connell is not shown by the building and naming a church in his memory: the Daniel O'Connell Memorial Church.

The actual construction works of the church, which dominates the town centre, started in 1886 and first Mass was celebrated in 1902. Large parts of the building are made of concrete. At the end of the nineteenth century concrete was a rather new material and the lack of experience with the material are noticeable.

Carhan House birthplace of Daniel O'Connell

by grandmaR

From the bus, I was able to get a very blurry photo of the ruins of Carhan House where Daniel O'Connell was born in 1775. There is a bust of him (almost visible in photo 3) next to the ruins.

The guide told us a lot of stories about how great a man Dónal Ó Conaill (his Irish name), known as The Liberator or The Emancipator, was. He was Ireland's predominant political leader in the first half of the nineteenth century who championed the cause of the Catholic tenants and small-landholders and campaigned for Catholic Emancipation - the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years - and Repeal of the Union between Ireland and Great Britain.
