John Devoy
Birth: Sep. 3, 1842
County Kildare, Ireland
Death: Sep. 29, 1928
Atlantic City
Atlantic County
New Jersey, USA

Irish nationalist. Jailed in England in 1866 for being leader of the Fenian orgnaisation. Emigrated to America on his release and founded the Irish-American organisation Clan na Gael. Initially supported de Valera in raising funds for Ireland in America, but this turned to rivalry between Clan na Gael and Sinn Fein. Devoy died in poverty in Atlantic City; his remains were later transported to Ireland. (bio by: David Conway)
