BOOK LAUNCH
Launch of Barry Feely+’s book by Dr Jason King who is the Academic Coordinator of the Irish Heritage Trust and National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park. The book is about the Workhouse in Boyle and emigration in famine times. It describes the building of and living conditions in the Workhouse. It tells the distressing tale of 52 orphan girls from the area, leaving on a Bianconi long cart and onwards on a sea voyage lasting 100 days to Australia. This was during the years 1848 to 1850, when 4114 orphan girls from Workhouses all over Ireland many as young as 14 years old were sent under the Earl Grey Irish orphans scheme to Sydney and beyond. Their passage was paid by the Australian Government as more females were required to offset the gender imbalance in the colony (8m:1F). Through correspondence with researchers (Irish Famine Memorial) based at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum, in Sydney, we have traced the early history of some local girls. Some of it makes for sad reading. They were so vulnerable. The Book also gives details on the Rockingham and Woodbrook evictions from their estates in the Barony of Boyle and their resettlement on Sheegora, and Ballymore. Poignant images of a famine house with its bed outshoot or ‘pristy’ bed are included. Emigration to America, Canada and Australia including the names of the ships and some passenger lists are also covered. Many of these passages were financially assisted by the Boyle Union Board of Guardians. Most of the information was gathered by reading the minutes of what remains of the Boyle Board of Guardians books and from local newspapers of the period. Taking place in King House, Boyle on Friday 16th November at 8pm.

Boyle GAA invite all 15-18 year olds and their parents (if they wish) to come along and hear the short presentations from a variety of professional and skilled young people who have chosen different career paths. The unknown for many- can bring excitement- but for others fear, thus hearing about college, apprenticeships and opportunities from those that have pursued these routes, will encourage young people to aspire to achieve their full potential in their chose career/interests.

BOOK LAUNCH
Launch of Barry’s book by Dr Jason King who is the Academic Coordinator of the Irish Heritage Trust and National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park. The book is about the Workhouse in Boyle and emigration in famine times. It describes the building of and living conditions in the Workhouse. It tells the distressing tale of 52 orphan girls from the area, leaving on a Bianconi long cart and onwards on a sea voyage lasting 100 days to Australia. This was during the years 1848 to 1850, when 4114 orphan girls from Workhouses all over Ireland many as young as 14 years old were sent under the Earl Grey Irish orphans scheme to Sydney and beyond. Their passage was paid by the Australian Government as more females were required to offset the gender imbalance in the colony (8m:1F). Through correspondence with researchers (Irish Famine Memorial) based at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum, in Sydney, we have traced the early history of some local girls. Some of it makes for sad reading. They were so vulnerable. The Book also gives details on the Rockingham and Woodbrook evictions from their estates in the Barony of Boyle and their resettlement on Sheegora, and Ballymore. Poignant images of a famine house with its bed outshoot or ‘pristy’ bed are included. Emigration to America, Canada and Australia including the names of the ships and some passenger lists are also covered. Many of these passages were financially assisted by the Boyle Union Board of Guardians. Most of the information was gathered by reading the minutes of what remains of the Boyle Board of Guardians books and from local newspapers of the period. Taking place in King House, Boyle on Friday 16th November at 8pm.
