Dwyer-McAllister Cottage (Expand pics)
Keadeen Mt & Guerilla Warfare!
If you happen to park near the Dwyer-McAllister Cottage en route to Keadeen, itís worth allowing an extra fifteen minutes to take a look at the recently restored building. Michael Dwyer was a United Irishman who retreated to the Wicklow Mountain after the failure of the 1798 rebellion and conducted a guerilla warfare campaign along with General Holt against the British. So successful were they that the British had to commit thousands of troops, build new barracks and even a road (the Old Military Road). Dwyer commanded such loyalty that, once when completely surrounded in this cottage, a colleague, McAllister, deliberately drew British gunfire and died so his leader could escape back into the Wicklow Mountains to re-group. Eventually Dwyer surrendered (after 6 years!) The British sent him as a prisoner to Australia, where ironically, he would eventually end up as a Police Chief! Unfortunately the cottage is only open June ĖSept but worth a visit as just 2 mins walk from parking area.
