    This is an article which I researched and wrote a few years back. Hope it will be of interest.

    Hi Eddie,

    Is the article online? If so, please post the link to it, but make it non-clicky if the website hosting it is either commercial or asks for donations. :)

    Thanks for that Eddie. Such sad reading actually. It's so hard to imagine how our families managed to survive sometimes.

    I immediately thought of your work Jane, when Eddie sent me this. There are comparisons.

    Thanks again Eddie. It gives others a foresight into their sad lives and I'm so sorry for the way that some of them were treated.
    Have you found all your girls Eddie?

    Thankyou Eddie, what a great read,look forward to more when the time comes. My 3 x Great Grandfather and his brothers emigrated from Ireland in the 1852,although not having it as tough as the girls, they too endured a difficult time in Australia

    God No! I placed notice in several Australian newspapers, but they are slow to come, I did get some from various parts of Ireland, but I really cannot get bogged down with other parts of the country. There are a few more Australian/Dungarvan articles on the Blog!
