John Mitchel

“John Mitchel 1815-1875. He took a prominent role in leading Ireland to be an independent nation.”

Mitchel was born near Dungiven but at age 8 the family moved to Newry, where Mitchel was schooled before entering Trinity College Dublin at age 15 (WP).

For his political life, see the post on the statue of Mitchel in downtown Newry.
