Campaigner for Irish Home Rule. MP for Meath 1875. Became President of the National Land league in 1879, giving him great influence during the 'land war' of 1879-82. Arrested 1881 - released in 1882 at the instigation of Gladstone, whom he eventually persuaded of the justice of Home Rule. However Parnell's home Rule Bill was defeated in 1886. Accused and completely acquitted of support of Irish terrorism, 1887-1889. At this point - when he was virtually 'uncrowned King of Ireland' - his influence suddenly collapsed when he was cited as co-respondent in the divorce case of Kitty O'Shea. He never recovered his grip on the Home Rule movement which was soon riven by dissension. Died in the arms of Kitty O'Shea, five months after marrying her.
