Life in 19th century Donegal could be, to quote Thomas Hobbes, ‘nasty, brutish and short’. And that was at the best of times, in the most convivial places. The Fanad peninsula was neither. It is situated on the far side of Lough Swilly to the Inishowen peninsula. With much of the land owned by one of the most oppressive landlords in the country, William Sydney, the 3rd earl of Leitrim, the people of Fanaid, to paraphrase the words of Henry David Thoreau, ‘led lives of quiet desperation and went to the grave with the song still in them.’ Except for ...http://www.rte.ie/radio1/the-history-show/programmes/2013/0526/452150-the-history-show-sunday-26-may-2013/?clipid=1222172

The Outer Edge of Ulster - Hugh Dorian’s recollections of life and death in mid-nineteenth-century north Donegal published by Lilliput Press.
