    Emigration

    Earlier in the programme we heard from Labour MEP Phil Prendergast who criticised the Taoiseach Enda Kenny over his remarks on emigration. The reality is close to 90,000 people left Ireland in the year up to April 2013 in search of work and new lives around the world.  The Government has made jobs a priority and the ESRI has predicted a 14 per cent drop in emigration this year as the economy improves. In a moment we will talk to Fintan O’Toole of the Irish Times who has been writing on the subject of emigration and Edwina Shanahan of VisaFirst.com, ...

    Fitzwilliam Estate Clearance

    Fitzwilliam Estate Clearance

    Wicklow historian, Jim Rees tells us that recent studies have shown that death from starvation and disease in this county was more common than had been previously realised. The Workhouses in Shillelagh, Rathdrum, Baltinglass and Rathdown were filled to overflowing. Eviction and emigration were also part of Wicklow’s famine experience. It has been estimated that the population of the county decreased by 21.5% between 1841 and 1851 – over 27,000 people. Landlords who were keen to get rid of “surplus” or unviable tenants were engaged in assisted emigration. The most important of these landlords was Lord Fitzwilliam, who owned an ...

    Early Irish Emigrants to Australia

    Early Irish Emigrants to Australia

    Our long history of migration to Australia began in 1788 when the first convict ships landed in Botany Bay. 25,000 Irish men and women arrived as convicts but others went voluntarily, like the 4,000 workhouse girls who left between 1848 and 1850 under the Earl Grey Scheme. Men out numbered women by 8 to one in Australia at that time – so many of these girls were basically a 19th century version of mail order brides. Historian, Dr. Gerard Moran, of NUI Maynooth spoke to Susan Dennehy about the Orphan Emigrant Scheme. In the bleakest of settings, they joined the ...
