A possible explanation: At one point in Irish history, the "Cravats" were a revolutionary agrarian secret society - what we would now call "terrorists", for better or worse. The implication would be that Fergus was not alone!

All that said, I'll need to check out the dates for consistency - but remember that Davis was essentially a romantic as well as a nationalist.
