Birth: unknown
Death: May 14, 1883
County Dublin, Ireland

Member of the Irish National Invincibles. The Irish National Invincibles was a secret society formed in 1881. Their aim was to remove the country Ireland of tyrants. They targeted Thomas Henry Burke, permanent under-secretary, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin on May 6, 1882. With Burke at the time was the British chief secretary for Ireland, Lord Frederick Cavendish. Both men were knifed to death. Five men were hanged by William Marwood in Kilmainham Jail near Dublin in May and June of 1883 for the killings. They were: Joe Brady, Michael Fagan, Thomas Caffrey, Dan Curley, and Tim Kelly. The principle witness was the informer James Carey, who was given passage to South Africa but was shot on board ship by Patrick O'Donnell. O'Donnell was brought back to England and hanged in December 1883. Kilmainham Jail contains the graves of the Invincibles convicted and executed for the Phoenix park stabbings. They were: Joe Brady, hanged Monday, May 14, 1883. Daniel Curley, May 18, 1883. Tim Kelly (19 years of age), June 9, 1883. Thomas Caffrey, June 2, 1883, and Michael Fagan, May 28, 1883. See also the grave of the Invincible James "Skin the Goat" Fitzharris, who is buried in Glasnevin cemetery.
