Edward Maginn (1802-1849) was one of the signal humanitarians of his or any age. He was an early advocate of Catholic Emancipation and supporter of Daniel O’Connell in the Repeal movement. Central to his relief efforts during the Great Hunger in Derry and Donegal, Maginn sought to rescue the poor in his diocese from starvation. This dramatic presentation highlights the extraordinary humility and relentless energy of a true altruist whose historical significance demands tribute.

Bhí Edward Maginn (1802-1849) ar na príomhdhaonnúlaigh lena linn nó ó shin. Ón tús, bhí sé go mór i bhfách le Fuascailt na gCaitliceach agus thacaigh le Daniel O'Connell sa ghluaiseacht Reipéil. Lárnach d'iarrachtaí fóirithinte le linn an Ghorta Mhóir i nDoire agus Dún na nGall, d'fhéach sé leis na boicht ina dheoise a tharrtháil ón ocras. Léiríonn an cur i láthair drámatúil seo umhlaíocht agus fuinneamh dochloíte duine fíoraltrúígh a dtuilleann a thábhacht stairiúil aitheantas.
