Description: Feargus Edward O’Connor (1794 – 1855) was an Irish Chartist leader and advocate of the Land Plan, which sought to provide smallholdings for the labouring classes. After the failure of the plan, O’Connor’s behaviour became increasingly erratic, culminating in an assault on three MPs and a mental breakdown, from which he did not recover.
