Kildea, Jeff
NB - Australian publication originally released in 2017 One of Australia’s most controversial politicians in the early years of the Commonwealth, Hugh Mahon has the distinction of being the only member expelled from the federal parliament. This followed a speech he made in 1920 critical of British rule in Ireland. Born in Co. Offaly in 1857, Hugh and his family emigrated to America in 1869 but returned in 1880 after their American dream failed.
