William Orr (1766 - 1797):
United Irishman

William Orr was born at Farranshane, County Antrim. He was arrested for administering the oath of the United Irishmen to two soldiers, and despite widely signed petitions and the jury's appeal, he was hanged in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, in 1797. William Drennan's 'The Wake of William Orr' was extremely popular. [Biography by F. J. Bigger]
