Sir Charles Gavan Duffy | Irish politician | Britannica

Charles Gavan Duffy (1816-1903) was a Young Irelander and the co-founder of the Nation newspaper alongside Thomas Davis and John Blake Dillon. Following Davis’s death in 1845, Gavan Duffy and John Mitchel became the leading writers of the Nation. Gavan Duffy escaped conviction for his role in the Young Ireland rebellion in 1848 and became part of the Irish Tenant Land League, being elected as an MP to Westminster. Eventually, disillusioned with Irish politics in general, he emigrated to Australia in 1856 and became Premier of the state of Victoria.
