Irish emigration to Australia: Thursday 24 April

The day after the official launch of her book, Colonial Duchesses, on Wednesday 23 April (see blogpost), the author Dr Liz Rushen (Monash University, Melbourne), together with Dr Perry McIntyre (UNSW, Sydney), will present Emigration of Irish women and girls to Australia in the 1830s and 1840s.

This will be a rare opportunity to hear two renowned experts discuss early Irish emigration to Australia.

Open to the public and with no need to book, the talk is being hosted by The Keith Cameron Chair of Australian History, University College Dublin, and will be presented at Boston College–Ireland, 42 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, at 6pm.
