"In the Lion's Den", cartoon by John Fergus O'Hea from the Weekly Freeman, 23 July 1887.
(After the celebrated picture by Gabriel Max.)
Erin has been dragged into the Tory Den, but happily there is an "ardent admirer" not far off.
(Based on the painting "The Lion's Bride" by Gabriel Max. Erin lies on the floor of a lion's cage as the "Tory" lion prepares to devour her. She holds in her right hand a crown or collar with the words "Home Rule" written on it. Gladstone stands outside the cage holding a rifle with the word "Democracy" written on it.)
