Ned Kelly: The outlaw who divides a nation

To many Australians, Ned Kelly, the son of poor Irish Catholics, was a heroic anti-establishment figure who fought corrupt British colonists in the 19th Century. To others, he was a vicious thug who murdered three police officers. Kelly's descendants have insisted that by burying him, they were not seeking to glorify the notorious bandit, but to give him a dignified and proper farewell. "It's good to see that Ned will get the funeral he finally deserved in the first place," says Anthony Griffiths, the outlaw's great-grandnephew. He'll be laid to rest on Sunday alongside his mother in a small cemetery in the hamlet of Greta that lies in the Victorian countryside he roamed during his feud with the local constabulary. The bushranger was executed in November 1880 after a shootout with the police in the southern state of Victoria. Heroes/Heroism Quotes.
