Storyline

At the death of Burke, the bulk of his fortune goes to his only son, Rory, a baby in arms. The child is in the keeping of his uncle. Sir Everett, who had a son of Rory's age. That his own son might inherit the fortune Everett causes Rory to be kidnapped. Twenty years later show Sir Everett's son grown up to be a cad of dissolute habits, but wealthy as a result of the stolen inheritance. Rory has grown to manhood in the home of a poor widow and her daughter, Eileen. Rory is in love with Kathleen, a peasant girl. Sir Everett's son wrongs Rory's foster sister. She dies and Rory swears vengeance upon the wrongdoer. However, vengeance is taken out of his hands. The kidnapper gets into an altercation with the son and kills him. Rory finds the body, is accused of the murder and is convicted and condemned to die. The kidnapper, conscience stricken, confesses to a priest, a good friend of Rory's. The priest cannot dishonor the sanctity of the confessional by making the confession public. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The story is very charming
11 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Warren Kerrigan as the hero "Rory of the Bogs," the rightful heir to the house of Burke, plays with his usual good effect. The story is very charming and is placed in the age of the Fenian riots in Ireland; a background not unfamiliar, but somehow always refreshing. By a chain of circumstances Rory is arrested for the murder of the false heir of Burke and he is about to be executed when the real murderer appears and confesses. - The Moving Picture World, December 20, 1913
