After 136 years of silence - the Kelly secret
They have broken a 136 year long silence believing it is historically important the Kelly family be remembered in TRUTH - not as portrayed by police and authorities.
"I do not pretend that i have led a blameless life, or that one fault justifies another, but the public in judging a case like mine should be remember that the darkest life may have a bright side and after the worst had been said against a man he may, if he is heard, tell a story in his own rough way that will perhaps lead them to soften the harshness of their thoughts against him and find as many excuses as he would plead for himself.
If my life teaches the public that men are made mad by bad treatment and if the police are taught that they may not exasperate to madness men they persecute and ill-treat, my life will not be entirely thrown away. people who live in large towns have no idea of the tyrannical contact of police in country places." - Ned Kelly
The strong proud Ellen Kelly's final words to Ned, her much loved son.
