The Irish birth place of Peter Lalor
"Tenakill" in Ireland was the house in which Peter Lalor, leader of the Eureka Rebellion in Ballarat, Victoria was born.
The photographs of the Lalor House, circa 1890 and of the plaque on the house were provided by Lalor descendants from the USA.
Notes from American Lalors
The house is thought to have been built in 1771 by Patrick Lalor #1, Peter's grandfather, with this photo taken in the 1890's. The house has not been occupied since the 1960's and has not been restored. Patrick's son Patrick (Honest Pat) was born here and became a leader in the Anti-tithe Movement in the 1830's. He was later elected to represent Queens Co. in the Parliment in London. Patrick and his wife, the former Ann Dillon had several children that were very well educated. Patrick # 2's son Richard succeeded him in the Parliment. James Fintan Lalor, eldest son of Patrick agitated for land reform. His arguments on this subject were published in Dublin newspapers.
