O'Connor, Feaugus Edward, was born near Cork in 1796. He identified himself with O'Connell in politics, whereby he secured a seat for Cork in 1832. He soon broke with his leader, and joined the English Radicals, becoming the leader of the Chartists. Returned for Nottingham in 1847, he took a prominent part in the demonstration and monster petition of 1848, aiding the movement largely by the publication of the Northern Star. Failure unhinged his mind, and he died a hopeless lunatic in 1855.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
