Young Ireland in Business for Himself
Following the secession of the Young Ireland movement from the Repeal Association of Daniel O'Connell in 1846, a "monkey faced" William Smith O'Brien is shown in a Repeal cap selling bullets, blunderbusses and pistols to an "equally simian looking" Paddy.

Signs in the shop read

"A large assortment of most ilicant Blunderbuss's, the trade supplied"
"Pretty little pistols for pretty little children"

According to Williams (2003): 175,
"The antiquated firearms and primitive agricultural weapons suggest the inadequacy of nationalist military resources and the foolishness of the idea that Ireland could overthrow England by arms."
Date 22 August 1846
