Thomas Devin Reilly(1823-1854)

Thomas Devin Reilly (1823-1854) was a member of the Young Irelanders and later the Irish Confederation. Born in Monaghan, he contributed to the Nation as well as the more revolutionary Irish Felon, alongside James Fintan Lalor and John Martin. He became involved in the failed 1848 Young Ireland rebellion and was later forced into exile to America, where he spent his final years continuing to write in favour of Irish nationalism as well as labour rights, before dying at the very young age of 30.
