Daniel O’Connor

Biography

A native of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, Daniel O’Connor worked as an assistant in the shop of Seamus Rafter, a local IRB man and Volunteer leader. Based in Enniscorthy during the Easter Rising, O’Connor fired on an RIC patrol whilst guarding the rebels’ headquarters in the Athenaeum and was later part of a group that dismantled the railway line in Ferns. Arrested in May and interned in Lewes and Frongoch until December 1916, O’Connor renewed his involvement with the Volunteers upon his release and fought in the War of Independence, taking part in attacks on Clonroche and Galbally RIC Barracks, amongst other activities.
