Daniel O'Connell's Chariot

By Elizabeth McKenna, 6th Class

Object No. 78 Daniel O'Connell's 'chariot', 1844
Derrynane House,Caherdaniel Co Kerry

What a chariot! Red, blue and gold, 

with golden designs, ornate and bold, 

drawn through the streets of Dublin City 

by six splendid horses and not one person showed pity. 

He sat there on his gilded seat, 

what a lucky man to have such a crowd 

to watch him go through Dublin’s beautiful city. 

Who is this man you ask, well of course 

it’s Ireland’s most celebrated and 

adored man of his time – Daniel O’Connell.
