Elizabeth Willoughby Treacy (1821-1896) of Antrim and Cork

 

Elizabeth Willoughby Treacy came from Brigadee, Ballymena, County Antrim. She came from a Protestant landowning family. Elizabeth was better known in Young Ireland circles as ‘Finola’. She assisted the Fenians, and took part in the Home Rule and Land League movements. She was only 16 when she started contributing to The Nation and was often published. She also published work in the Belfast Vindictor. Her first publication, Poems by Finola, a small volume of patriotic poems was published in Belfast in 1851. Her poem “The Irish Mother’s Lament” was published in ‘Street Ballads etc’ in 1865. Ralph Varian of Cork also had numerous poems published in that volume. In 1869, he published ‘The Harp of Erin: A Book of Ballad-poetry and of Native Song’ in which she was included. In 1871, she married Ralph Varian and he also edited her second volume of poems in 1874, ‘Never forsake the ship and other poems’ Dublin: McGlashan & Gill. [link] There is also ‘The political and national poems of Finola’, Dublin, M.H. Gill & Son, 1877.

The Manchester Martyrs

 

The Manchester Martyrs were William Allen, Michael Larkin and Michael O’Brien, all born in Ireland but living in Manchester and active Fenians. In 1867, after a most dubious trial, they were executed for their part in a successful ambush to free two Irish-American Fenian leaders Thomas Kelly and Timothy Deasy leaders from a prison van in which a policeman was shot dead. The Fenian leaders were not only freed but also spirited out of the country to New York, despite a £300 reward for their capture, about six times the average annual salary. Among those who helped Kelly escape were a Dr Kelly of Oxford Road and a Fr Tracy, evidence that Fenian sympathies were not just the preserve of the “low Irish” as the English press depicted the working-class Irish. Thomas Kelly on the run in the Cheetham Hill area, where he escaped from the police by changing clothes with a Father Tracey, before being taken to Liverpool by a Fenian who drove for a wine and spirit merchant. Concealed among the cases of wine he was delivered into friendly hands who assisted him to board a ship

Letters and Leaders of my Day T. M. Healy, K. C.

Father Tracy's brother, Mat, a reporter on the Cork Examiner, was a "character." He was dispatched during the Fenian Rising of 1867 in Kerry by its owner, J. F. Maguire (M.P for Dungarvan), to report events. Mat, equipped with a musket plus a lead-pencil, set forth and was speedily arrested. Telegraphic communication between England and Ireland was then in its infancy, and the Government had no details of Mat's activities. Maguire, in his reporter's bona fides, demanded in the House of Commons satisfaction for his arrest from Lord Naas, the Chief Secretary of the day. That nobleman (afterwards Lord Mayo, the murdered Indian Viceroy) effused in apology, and agreed that the arrest was an infringement of the "liberty of the Press." Maguire urged that compensation should be paid. Lord Naas concurred. Whether £100 or £500 was given, it was too much for Mat. Friends gathered round him night after night, to enjoy his compensation and hospitality. At the end of his jovial evenings he would raise his glass in pathetic self-pity, crying, "Ah, boys! The British Government has been the ruin of me!"

 

...Father [John] Tracy of Heaton Norris, Stockport, who seems himself to have been a nationalist sympathiser, had a brother Mat, a reporter of the Cork Examiner, who was arrested for carrying a musket during the Fenian rising of 1867, but was able to extract compensation from the British government for wrongful arrest. 'Friends gathered round him night after night, to enjoy his compensation and hospitality. At the end of his...evenings he would raise his glass in pathetic self-pity crying "Ah boys! the British government has been the ruin of me" (T. M. Healy, Letters and Leaders of my day, London 1928 i. p.25).

Collegiate Exercises At Mount Melleray Abbey... Master John Tracy then delivered, in admirable style, one of O'Connell's speeches…

[1857] Certainly, a decade later, similar complaints were being relayed to All Hallows. From the Salford diocese, Bishop William Turner wrote that he was unable to accept one student priest, even on a short-term basis, 'for six months or any period'. In refusing him, he said, 'I am sorry that Mr Tracey is so ultra-Irish but I hope that the advice and caution you will deem it necessary to give him would have its due effect'. [AHC Salford.

A Pilgrimage to Bodenstown. (By Michael Cavanagh)...November 9th 1861... As our little party of Irish-Americans were preparing to start from the Shelboume Hotel, on this loving mission, it was unexpectedly reinforced by another exiled pilgrim- Mr. Kelly, a native of Waterford, but for many years a resident of Manchester. Having signified his intention of forming a “delegation of one” from his expatriated countrymen in Manchester, he had been furnished with a letter of introduction to me by a dearly beloved townsrnan of mine, the Rev. John Tracey, who felt confident that it would ensure the bearer a cordial reception. It not only fulfilled its object so far, but caused were old acquaintances, linked together by the mutual friendship we entertained for the patriot priest. When I left my old home, twelve years before, John Tracy was one of a band of Cappoquin boys, studying at the celebrated school of Melleray, several of whom have since become distinguished ornaments of the Irish missionary church celebrated alike for their efiiciency and zeal in propagating the faith in foreign lands, and for their loving devotion to their own dear isle…My dear friend, Father ]ohn Tracy, with a happier fate than any, died whilst on a visit to the home of his boyhood, and is blessed with a grave in front of the altar where he served Mass years before, and where the prayers of his people are surer to be perpetually offered up for his pure spirit’s eternal repose…

On Sunday last, a deputation from the congregation of St. Augustine's consisting of Messrs. Brady, Kelly, M‘Coy, J. Brady, Blanchflower, and R. Clayton, waited upon the Rev. J. Tracy, at Heaton Norris, to present him with an address of affection expressing their regret at the separation, and wishing him happiness and success in the new mission to which he has been recently appointed by the Bishop. Accompanying the address was a purse of gold. The Rev. gentleman returned his grateful thanks, and acknowledged with much feeling the kindness which he had experienced during the years he laboured at St. Augustine's, both from the clergy and laity.

February 1867 Fenian Movement in Kerry

...Mr. Matthew Tracy, the reporter of the Cork Herald, tried to telegraph that there was disaffection among the troops. The RM stopped the telegraph and arrested Tracy...

Question.HC Deb 01 March 1867 vol 185 cc1233-4

LORD NAAS Sir, on the 20th of February a telegram was taken to the telegraph clerk at Killarney to this effect— Rumoured disaffection of troops. Officers heard men singing songs with civilians. Removed by police. Military sent to quarters. Fourteen soldiers missing this morning. A wire cut last night at Cluanmullane. I need hardly assure the House that with the exception of the last—the cutting of the telegraph wire—the whole was entirely false. On this message being taken to the magistrates by the person charged with the conduct of the telegraph at Killarney, the magistrates thought it their duty to order the arrest of the person who was proved to have sent the telegram. It turned out that the gentleman's name was Tracey, and that he was a reporter of the Cork Herald. The magistrates considered that this person, in sending this message, had been guilty of a very serious offence against the law of the land; and they committed him to take his trial at the ensuing assizes. Bail, however, was offered on his part and accepted. As the trial is pending, and as this gentleman has given notice of his intention to take action at law against the magistrates for false imprisonment, I am sure the House will feel that I should exceed my duty if I expressed any opinion on the transaction.

Father Tracy's brother, Mat, a reporter on the Cork Examiner, was a "character." He was dispatched during the Fenian Rising of 1867 in Kerry by its owner, J. F. Maguire (M.P for Dungarvan), to report events. Mat, equipped with a musket plus a lead-pencil, set forth and was speedily arrested. Telegraphic communication between England and Ireland was then in its infancy, and the Government had no details of Mat's activities. Maguire, in his reporter's bona fides, demanded in the House of Commons satisfaction for his arrest from Lord Naas, the Chief Secretary of the day. That nobleman (afterwards Lord Mayo, the murdered Indian Viceroy) effused in apology, and agreed that the arrest was an infringement of the "liberty of the Press." Maguire urged that compensation should be paid. Lord Naas concurred. Whether £100 or £500 was given, it was too much for Mat. Friends gathered round him night after night, to enjoy his compensation and hospitality. At the end of his jovial evenings he would raise his glass in pathetic self-pity, crying, "Ah, boys! The British Government has been the ruin of me!"

..."In '67 at the time of the Fenian rising, the Cork Examiner sent a man down to Kerry to 'do the rising'. The man whose name was Matt Tracey, went down armed with a lead pencil and a rifle, and was at once taken into custody - most unjustly - I need hardly say. The owner of the examiner, Mr. John Francis Maguire, was in Parliament, and denounced this invasion of the liberty of the press...Lord Mayo...promised that a sum of £500 would be paid to Mr. Tracey...

 

...Father Tracy of Heaton Norris, Stockport, who seems himself to have been a nationalist sympathiser, had a brother Mat, a reporter of the Cork Examiner, who was arrested for carrying a musket during the Fenian rising of 1867, but was able to extract compensation from the British government for wrongful arrest. 'Friends gathered round him night after night, to enjoy his compensation and hospitality.

Boston, March 5, 1868.

To the Editor of The Pilot.

Dear Sir : — At a regular meeting of the Wolfe Tone Circle F. B. [Fenian Brotherhood] of Boston, at Corcoran Hall on Washington street, on Thursday evening March 5, the announcement of the death of a true man and earnest fellow laborer in Ireland's cause, Michael Tracy was received by his brother members with feelings of sorrow. Another of Ireland's soldiers gone. Another true friend and Fenian iost. The ranks grow thin. Duty called some and they sleep in England's dungeons; God called some, and they rest In quiet graves mourned by the living, who close up and still move on. As a token of the esteem in which the deceased was held by his brother members, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:

Resolved, That we deeply and sincerely mourn the death of our brother member, Michael Tracy whom the Almighty has been pleased to call suddenly irom amongst us and his loving family. He was a true Fenian, a good husband and father.

Resolved, That while we bow humbly to the will of Heaven we tender to his bereaved wife and children our heartfelt sympathy, and pray to Him, who doeth al1 things well, to grant them strength to bear their affliction with Christian meekness.

Resolved, That Michael Tracy’s name remain on the records of the Wolfe Tone Circle F. B., as a token of respect to our departed brother.

Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be published in The Pilot, Irish People, and Irish Citizen, and that a copy be also tendered to his disconsolate wife.

Patrick b. before October 1833 (or 1831), Dunmore, married March 2, 1845, Dunmore, to Bridget Grady, who seems to have been his landlady's daughter. Win Ford (sister below) had bad memories of British soldiers. Patrick, according to family stories, was suspected of being a Fenian organizer for Dunmore and denied it vigorously. This would have been in the 1850's and may have accounted for Win's lifelong hatred of the British.  [see Dunmore Galway]

Schools Collection

 

During the year of the rising out Paddy Treacy a brother of Mrs Riordan's of Roskeen was shot. This man was in one of the overhead rooms of his sisters house which is now occupied by Richard Ryan. The stain of the blood is to be seen on the wall of the room and if the room was papered the stain would come out through the paper.

 

A priest said that the person that shot Treacy would loose his hand. Butler of Anfield lost his hand some time later and people said it was he who shot Treacy . Roskeen barrack was burned that same night and we are told that it was Butler and some others burned it.

 

A man by the name of Treacy was shot during Fenians in one of the upper rooms of a house owned by Mr.Riordan. Treacy was a brother of Mrs. Riordan. The Fenians asked Mr. Riordan for the gun. Mr Riordan was a peeler one time. Treacy put out his head in one of the upper windows and told the fenians to get away. He was shot on that moment. It is not known what made Treacy talk to Fenian as he was a member of them

The Fenians on the War Path.

Vermont is said to be teeming with Fenians. Last night it was believed they were going somewhere, to do something, Two organized companies of them left Burlington for Canada last evening, and a boat load of them is said to be en route from Plattsburgh to Albans Bay. Nearly every team in St Albans and Burlington. was engaged for use last night. There were rumors that large numbers of men were ready to ship from Boston, Manchester. Concord, and Other points awaiting transportation. The city of Buffalo is full of Fenians, and there is every indication that something is going to be did sure.

Richard Tracy, of this village, has opened a recruiting office in his bakery, and the green flag Waves triumphantly in front of his building to-day. An old musket and bayonet shows his earnest intentions, and we have no doubt Richard will be able to raise a full company, as soon as the tocsin of war is sounded. Go in Dick and win.

1860’s

The Centre, or head of the Circle (who was supposed to have the rank of Colonel) was known as "A", and he was allowed to have nine "Bs", or sub-Centres (Captains) ; each "B" had nine "Cs" (Sergeants) if his quota was full, and every "C" had nine "Ds", who were privates. This regulation was never strictly adhered to and some Circles, like that of John Hickey of "Kingstown", and William F. Roantree's in the Leixlip District of Kildare, had fully 2,000 members. A little Tipperary hunchback shoemaker named Stephen Tracy, who was one of [James?] O'Callaghan's "Bs" in Dublin, had the ambition to become a Centre, recruited his section up to 150 men and appointed three or four "Nomeenial 'Bs' ", saying he "didn't want to play second fiddle to no man", and there were other instances of the kind.

Stephen Tracey.

 

We are sorry we have to record this week the death of Mr. Stephen Tracey, at his residence, 6, Werburg-street, Dublin. Deceased was an ardent lover of his country, firmly believed in its regeneration, and zealously laboured in teaching the people to unite and act, if they ever meant earnestly to possess any right, but the right to starve in this country. Naturally delicate, Death visited him in the midst of his labours. We revere his memory, and wish his spirit eternal rest. With equal capacity few men could have done more than he did for the good cause. His gentle disposition endeared him to his companions. If the four or five hundred friends who walked with his remains to Glasnevin on last Wednesday, will bear in mind his zealous labour when living, and strive to follow the example he has left behind him; though gone from amongst them, he will live in his work, and his spirit will, if possible, be in their midst.

Tracey died of TB in January 1864, his obituary appeared in the Irish People and more than 400 Fenians attended his funeral to Glasnevin. (Ó Cathaoir)
