I'm deleting the Citizenship section in the infobox, Davis was not a UK citizen as UK citizenship did not exist in Davis' day, not being created until 1948, a hundred years after his death. (See History of British nationality law). The listed nationality should cover the situation as Ireland in Davis' day was part of the UK anyway.
I agree that "Irish politician" is not the most apt, but two questions: (1) Why "Thomas Osborne Davis" when he is known as "Thomas Davis"? Middle names by convention go in the intro, not the title. (2) Why not "Irish Revolutionary"? Surely what he was, and what he had in common with previous and later generations, is more relevant to the article name than the specific organisation he belonged to?

On your first point I agree, on the second however Davis was not a member of Young Ireland (there never was such an organisation) he was Young Ireland according to his friends. I'd be more then happy with Thomas Davis (Young Irelander). --Domer48'fenian' 15:15, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
