June 6, 1866 - U.S. President, Andrew Jackson issued a proclamation condemning the Fenian’s ‘high misdemeanors, forbidden by the laws of the United States’. This decision officially ended the neutrality of the American government, denying safe refuge to the Fenians. Orders were then issued to troops under Generals Ulysses S. Grant and George C. Meade to seize their arms and ammunition.

June 9, 1853 - Eleven people died as an anti-catholic speech by an anti-papist, Alessandro Gavazzi, sparked a riot at the Zion church in Montreal, Quebec. The deaths were caused by British troops firing a volley into the Protestant congregation as the people were leaving the church. Gavazzi had to be escorted from Quebec under the guard of 60 soldiers. Three days earlier, troops quelled a riot in Quebec City at another stop on his lecture tour.

June 10, 1688 - Prince James Francis Edward Stuart (Stewart), or the 'Old Pretender' as he is better known, was born today in 1688. His claim to the English and Scottish thrones (as James III of England and VIII of Scotland) dates from the death of his father, James II, who had been deposed by the Dutch William III in 1689. Attempts to regain power, however, were not successful and James saw out the remainder of his life in exile in Rome. His son, Charles Edward Stuart - aka 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' - almost succeeded where his father had failed but his attempt to be king essentially ended at the Battle of Culloden

You're welcome! I will keep it going as long as I see people are reading it and as long as I don't run out of things to add.

June 21, 1871 - The Bishop of Limerick, Dr. Butler bought the Ardagh Chalice for £50 from Mrs. Quin of Ardagh, County Limerick.

It was discovered in September 1868 by Jimmy Quin and Paddy Flanagan while digging potatoes in a ring fort at Reerasta, Ardagh. It is unclear why they were digging potatoes in a fort, although it is possible that they believed that the potatoes grown here would be safe from the blight that had afflicted the potato crop during the Great Famine.

Bishop Butler sold the chalice to the Royal Irish Academy in 1878 for £500. It is now found in the National Museum in Dublin
