A hundred years to the day

A wreath marks the gravesite in Calvary Cemetery, Queens, New York, of Edward O'Meagher Condon who died a century ago this week. O’Meagher Condon was a Cork-born member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood who went on trial along with the Manchester Martyrs but who was acquitted, in part because by then he was a U.S. citizen. The wreath was laid Tuesday, the centenary day, by Brian Andersson, former New York City Commissioner for Records.
