Join us here at EPIC as Mark O’Neill describes the extraordinary life of his grandfather, an Irish Presbyterian missionary in Manchuria from 1897 to 1942.
For two years, Reverend Fredrick O’Neill served Chinese workers sent to France to help the Allied armies in the First World War. The Boxer Uprising, a pneumonic plague that killed 60,000 people, the Russo-Japanese war and the Japanese occupation of Manchuria, O’Neill lived through it all.
