The wake of Wolfe Tone, possibly Thomas Street

Not much investigated but Wolfe Tone was possibly waked at Tom Kennedys Bar number 65 Thomas street. Many locals would know this bar as O’Neills. Wolfe Tone had associations with High Street and of course the Back Lane parliament but it’s an intriguing possibility, given definite associations I’ve researched relating to Fenian meetings held there which included O’Donovan Rossa(More on that element at another stage) John’s lane church was only under construction then, hampered by lack of funding for completion and the fact that many fenians involved in the building of it were arrested. Out the back of the premises is part of the medieval city wall. The address was noted in the glamour of dublin, published in the early part of the 20th century.
