Thomas Power O'Connor (1848-1929), Irish journalist and politician, educated at Queen's College, Galway, began his journalist career at the Dublin Saunders' Newsletter before moving to London to work for the Daily Telegraph. "O'Connor held radical political opinions and in tthe 1880 General Election became the Irish Nationalist MP for Galway....in 1887 [he] founded and edited the radical newspaper, The Star. Henry Hamilton Fyfe, the future editor of the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, claimed that O'Connor was the founder of what became known as the New Journalism...O'Connor also founded the T.P.'s Weekly (1902)." - Spartacus Educational online.
