The Kilmainham Treaty caused completion of the ‘No-Rent ‘campaign, and also Charles Stewart Parnell and the National Land Organization leadership put pressure on the Ladies ‘Land Organization to take on a totally charitable function. Anna resisted this and also, complying with the dissolution of the Ladies Land Organization in August 1882, she never ever talked with her bro again. She spent her last years living under a pseudonym in Devon, England, were she died in a sinking crash on 20th September 1911, at the age of 59.

The plaque was suggested by retired teacher Lucy Keaveney, that was also the stimulant for the government-funded repair of Anna Parnell’s tomb in 2017.
