This petition, signed by over 80,000 people from every part of Ireland and from Liverpool, Manchester, and other parts of England, between 1848 and 1849, is a unique historical and genealogical source from the period of the Famine.

Following the failure of the 1848 rising, O'Brien was sentenced to death, and this petition was collected to gain clemency for the rebel leader. As a consequence his sentence was commuted and O'Brien was transported to Australia for life.

Ruth Lawler has compiled and edited this petition for publication to enable all researchers to access this important, yet unknown, source. Eneclann is committed to bringing new and rare historical records to public attention as well as easing access to all genealogical sources in Ireland.

This publication contains:

Over 80,000 names, addresses and occupations

Over 10,000 names from England and

Over 70,000 names from Ireland

Scanned images of all 167 petition headers
