Daniel O'Connell, M.P., (1775-1847), in a classroom about to beat a judge who is being held on the back of a man. O'Connell holds the switch "Repeal" above his head and says "I'll teach you to learn your betters". The judge implores "Oh Sir Sir it was this Boy told me". Whimpering pupils cower in one corner. One says "This Kerry Schoolmaster will beat us all". A bishop looks on in horror. In another corner a pupil wears a dunce cap and stands on a stool. On the floor is a book "Grattan Flood & Charlemont on Irish Laws". A poster on the wall states "Politics made easy or Moral Force taught on Irish Principles by Paddy Blake".
