Thursday’s ad is for Budweiser, from 1914, No. 8 in another series they did in 1914-15 called the “National Heroes Series.” The eighth one features Daniel O’Connell, who was “often referred to as The Liberator or The Emancipator, was an Irish political leader in the first half of the 19th century. He campaigned for Catholic emancipation—including the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years—and repeal of the Act of Union which combined Great Britain and Ireland.”
The Beer Nut says
O’Connell also funded a brewery in Dublin, The Phoenix, which was run by his son Daniel Jr. O’Connell’s Dublin Ale was probably the best-known Dublin ale brand, right up until the 1930s.
I cover a bit of the story in my visit to the site of The Phoenix in this video about Dublin brewing history.
