On Sunday September 19th 1847 a public meeting took place on the Fair Green in the village of Holycross, Co. Tipperary.

The meeting was organised by farmer-turned-journalist, James Fintan Lalor, who lived near Abbeyleix in Queen’s County.

On Saturday September 19th 2020, the 173rd anniversary of that fateful meeting, "Ireland's Hope", James P. Bruce's new study

The principal speaker was writer and commentator, John Waters. He was introduced by Stephen Bruce.
