He is a real Australian folk hero. We all love him here in Oz. The time when Ned was alive there was still a lot of animosity between the Irish and British. This conflict has a lot to do with the Australian character. The Eureka Stockade is a very good example of the conflict between the Irish and authority.

The Irish were part of the UK at this time but were very unwilling.
