|Description:||Born in Wicklow in 1780, Anne Devlin moved to a farm in Rathfarnham with her family. In 1803, Robert Emmet rented the nearby Butterfield House. As well as being his housekeeper, she became his faithful servant and assisted him in his preparations for his ill-fated insurrection. She was arrested and imprisoned in Kilmainham for high treason. Despite being tortured, she refused to give up any information. Taken from "Footprints of Emmet" published in 1903.|
