Timothy Deasy was a Captain in the Irish Republican Brotherhood.

He was captured during their abortive uprising in 1867. He was released with a fellow IRB prisoner Colonel Thomas J. Kelly by an attack on a prison van in Manchester. He escaped, but three of his rescuers were executed for their part in the rescue, during which a policeman was killed.
