In those parts of Ireland more southern, and in all places more papal, July 12th is celebrated as the Feast Day of Saint John Jones. His name was common, and he seemed to like crowds – after all, he was one of the Forty English Martyrs. On this very day in 1598, in Southwark, England, the Franciscan – also known as Buckley (!) – was hanged, drawn, quartered, and then chopped to pieces, his punishment for the crime of treason. His execution/murder came after being imprisoned and tortured for two years. Well, those things happened to Roman Catholic priests. And still do.
BTW: Saint John was captured and tortured by the notorious Catholic hunter Richard Topcliffe, to whom, says Wikipedia, Queen Elizabeth I gave much land, in of all places – Derbyshire!
