The Fenians - Irish secret society

nedjelja, 7. ožujka 2010.

Fenian movement was a secret Irish organization created by John O'Mahony in 1858.

Fenians were members of the so-called Fenian movement in Ireland and elsewhere, though primarily America and England . The Fenians wanted one simple desire - to secure Irish independence from Britain. During the middle of the 19th Century, a series of factors combined to create a new Irish patriotic movement. This organization was a revolutionary group dedicated to the overthrow of British rule in Ireland. This movement had its roots in both the United States and Ireland and was called Fenian in honour of the Fianna, the ancient Irish warriors.
The movement adopted the pledge-bound format of the secret societies, adding a cellular structure with a Supreme Council and a Head Centre.
