So you’ll find the plaque here at Maynooth Library (note my bike included!). Robert Emmet had his rebellion in 1803. We’re told that ‘Maynooth was in arms’. The Duke of Leinster went to the people to persuade them to put down their weapons and they did so, piling them up at Carton. This does go against the plaque which commemorates the people! Ah well…
