William Tell was a (presumably pseudonymous) nationalist cartoonist who published a series of twelve cartoons entitled "Hints & Hits" in Dublin in 1844, each costing a penny, or tuppence for a hand-coloured copy. The cartoons were in response to the Daniel O'Connell's campaign to repeal the Act of Union, his cancellation of the pro-Repeal "monster meeting" at Clontarf, and his trial on charges of conspiring to undermine the constitution and alienating the armed forces from their allegiance.
