English: Michael Dwyer (1772–1825) was a Society of the United Irishmen leader in the 1798 rebellion. He later fought a guerilla campaign against the British Army in the Wicklow Mountains from 1798-1803. Dwyer was celebrated for his resourcefulness and courage, although he could also be ruthless. He survived huge ransoms and the thousands of British troops sent to Ireland to kill him.
