Meagher, Thomas Francis

Researcher 30's insight:
Researcher 30's insight:

Thomas Francis Meagher - the guy who designed the Irish flag, had to flee Ireland, ended up in Montana, US as it's first governor. 

 

Insight/angle - those who are such a touchstone of Irish history (by designing the tricolour) had such impact here, who were forced to flee Ireland, ended up having just as big if not bigger impact on the places they ended up in after leaving Ireland. Perhaps something about how they maintained their Irish identity abroad, the link with home, or were they gone forever and didn't look back?
