Neal O'Boyle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neil John O'Boyle was president of the Irish Republican Brotherhood from 1907 to 1910. Seán Ó Faoláin later characterised O'Boyle in Belfast and Tom Clarke in Dublin as typical of the 'older realists' of the movement in the period prior to the Easter Rising.[1] Through the intervention of Bulmer Hobson, an ageing O'Boyle relinquished his position as Ulster representative on the Supreme Council in favour of Denis McCullough.[2]
