Page 364 of French journal 'Le Monde Illustré' 1871 featuring an image of Robert Kelly on trial at the City of Dublin Commission Court, October 1871, (attributed to Moller after an original sketch by M.D. Loye). He was accused of the murder of Head-Constable Thomas Talbot and found not guilty but was tried again in February 1872 for shooting at the constable who arrested him and then sentenced to twenty years penal servitude. Several images on the one sheet - the image lower left shows the murder of Thomas Talbot; the image lower centre depicts the crowd in the courtroom cheering the jury; the image lower right shows Robert Kelly attempting to murder the pursuing policemen. A centre of sheet is the image of Robert Kelly in the dock; above him is an illustration of the Flag of Home Rule, a medallion with the words "Erin Go Bragh" alongside images in the backgound of Dunlop and the Lakes of Killarney.
