In 1867, Fenianism in Ireland was at its peak. The English, desperate to stem the tide of rebellion, banished convicted Fenians, along with thousands of common criminals, to exile in Australia. The Hougoumont, the last official convict ship to Australia, sailed in the autumn of 1867 with young Denis B. Cashman of Waterford on board. He was convicted of felony treason and sentenced to seven years' penal servitude. On the long journey, Cashman kept a diary where he shares in poignant detail his homesickness, wry humour, new friendships, adversity, and fear. -- Publisher description

John Boyle O'reilly Books, John Boyle O'reilly poetry book Looking Back at South Shore History Authors: John J. Galluzzo
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
Published Date: 2013-08-13
Categories: History
From Plymouth Rock to Quincy granite, the South Shore of Boston has been a place of revolution, relaxation and revelation. Artists have gained inspiration from the meeting of sea and shore, enemy navies have targeted its strategic ports and, in better days, merrymakers have sought its warming sun, cooling breezes, amusement parks and historic and natural landmarks. The Toll House Cookie, the song "When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along)" and the U.S. Navy's rallying cry "Don't give up the ship " all were South Shore born. John Galluzzo, author of "The North River: Scenic Waterway of the South Shore" and "When Hull Freezes Over," gathers the best of his "Look Back" column in this compilation of historic vignettes from "South Shore Living" magazine.

John Boyle O'reilly Books, John Boyle O'reilly poetry book Shillelagh Authors: John W. Hurley
Publisher: Lulu.com
Published Date: 2007
Categories: History
For centuries the Irish have been associated with a stick weapon called the Shillelagh. And for generations of Irishmen, the Shillelagh was a badge of honor - a symbol of their courage, their martial prowess and their willingness to fight for their rights and their honor. In modern popular culture, the Shillelagh has acquired a less appealing image, one that attempts to declaw the Irish through negative racial stereotypes of the Victorian era, which depict the Irish as harmless club-weilding Leprecauns or drunken, half-witted brawlers. John Hurley's illuminating study forever alters our view of this much maligned and misunderstood cultural icon by revealing the true martial arts culture of the Irish people, its history, evolution and decline and the resulting effects on the Shillelagh - the most powerful and controversial of Irish icons.

Poem of the day

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
