Born in 1854 into a poor Irish Catholic family, he and his brother Dan were in trouble with the police even as kids. At first they stole only sheep, cattle or horses, eventually becoming outlaws, living in the Ausstralian outback. With their two friends Joe Byrne and Steve Hart, they robbed two banks but gave the money they took to help the poor and oppressed people of Victoria Colony.There were many attempts to capture them, and it finally took over 100 armed policemen to capture Ned and kill the other members of the gang. Ned was patched up after the shoot-out and stood trial in Melbourne in 1880, aged only 25.A fascinating tale of a short but adventurous life.
