Edward Lerner's talk on Kitty O'Shea - not the old musical performer but Katharine Parnell known before her second marriage as Katharine O'Shea, and usually called by friends Katie O'Shea and by enemies Kitty O'Shea. She was an English woman of aristocratic background, whose decade-long secret adultery with Charles Stewart Parnell led to a widely publicised divorce in 1890 and his political downfall.
