Daniel O'Connell, M.P., (1775-1847), wearing a top hat and green coat with the words "Repeal" and "Emancipation" inscribed on each sleeve. His fists are raised as if ready to fight. He says "That's enough for you. My Hero of Waterloo. Peel - OFF". The two men that flee from him are probably the Duke of Wellington "The hero of Waterloo" and Robert Peel, M.P., (1788-1850). Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington, (1769-1852), in uniform clasps his side and says "That Hit is worse than ever I got from Boney". Peel runs with his arms outstretched while a dog attacks his feet. Peel says "He who Fights and runs away lives to fight another day". A man standing behind O'Donnell and trying to control the dog on a lead, says "Liberator I can scarcely hold back".
