The bishop then nominated Michael Davitt, founder of the Land League, to unseat North Meaths Parnellite MP, Pierce Mahony (who is commemorated in the name of Navans GAA club).

While the Parnellites successfully petitioned the courts to have Davitts election - and that of Patrick Fulham, his colleague in South Meath - annulled because of undue clerical influence, new anti-Parnellite candidates narrowly won the ensuing by-elections. However, clerical interference in Meath politics provided damaging evidence of Rome rule to Tories and Unionists opposing Gladstones second Home Rule bill, which was lost in the Lords in 1893.
