The Nation[edit]

I think his newspaper was called "The Nation" not "The Nature"

Quite right. I fixed it. Filiocht | Blarneyman 07:43, Apr 29, 2005 (UTC)

My understanding is that Louise Gavan Duffy was headmistress of a girl's school in Dublin (the first one, actually). As the Easter Uprising happened to occur at the same location, she converted the school into a field hospital. This hardly makes her non-peaceful, as the trivia comment implies. Unless the author can muster evidence that she engaged in violence, the implication ought to be dropped.

family relations[edit]

hey, I found out from a relative in Ireland (from Galway) that our family is related to Charles Gavan Duffy. I was wondering if anyone else is realted to him??? (It's kinda creepy he looks just like my grandfather too...) I was just curious b/c the guy in the other discussion is from syracuse (syr.edu?) and I go to college at geneseo new york near rochester an hour away. My sister knows more about the geneology stuff than I do though so ill have to find out more about this stuff.

Several mistrakes Spotted a couple of mistrakes - opps- mistakes in the main article and altered. Also added in further details.Tonyob 02:28, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Background section[edit]

The background section will need to be referenced, as the information is incorrect. I will sort it out, but would like to see the sources that were used first. Of all the members of Young Ireland, Duffy left the most information regarding this period. Regards--Domer48 12:00, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Removed some referenced Text[edit]

The information contained in the reference was incorrect. O’Conner was not in communication at all with Duffy. The account given (Four Years of Irish History 1845-1849, pg 669) is by one of the agents of the Directory in America. Duffy was not involved in the rebellion of 1848 at all; he was in prison on a charge of sedition. Regards --Domer48 20:46, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Disruptive editing[edit]

In the Young Irish disorders in Ireland in 1848 the following nine men were captured,tried and convicted of treason against Her Majesty, the Queen and were sentenced to death: John Mitchell,Morris Lyene,Pat Donahue, Thomas McGee, Charles Duffy, Thomas Meagher, Richard O’Gorman, Terrence McManus, Michael Ireland.

John Mitchel was never sentenced to death and was transported before the Young Irelander Rebellion. Charles Gavan Duffy was never sentenced or transported likewise Thomas D'Arcy McGee. No such person as Pat Donahue, there was however a Patrick O'Donoghue, Maurice Richard Leyne was never convicted. Richard O’Gorman was never captured. I could go on with the rest of the text but there is not much point. This is what happens when you copy and paste from sources that don't supply references]. It is also why we insist on them, and why when restoring text the burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. All quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be attributed to a reliable, published source using an inline citation.

Edit warring to keep this type of information helps no one.--Domer48'fenian' 19:13, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

The name "Gavan Duffy"[edit]

The family tradition of assigning "Gavan" as a middle name is not limited to male children. I have recently visited the family crypt in Dublin's Glasnevin Cemetary (O'Connell Circle, a few steps from the visitor center). The corpses of Charles Gavan Duffy and 8 or 9 of his progeny are there. The females (three or four of them) as well as the males have "Gavan" as their middle name. I can produce all their names, except that I do not have that data in front of me at the moment. I have photos of the grave marker with all the names (in Gaelic of course) if anyone's interested. Anyway, I altered the parenthetical note at the end of the article (before the "Notes" section) so that it refers to a family tradition of giving "Gavan" as the middle name of children, not just the male children.

Note:[edit]

Removed by the previous editor was the note about names. Both Charles and Frank Gavan Duffy are sometimes referred to as though their surname was Gavan Duffy. There is no doubt that the family surname was Duffy, but the family tradition of giving all children the middle name Gavan has led to some confusion about this. ☕ Antiqueight haver 00:09, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
