One thought on “The Irish History Circle

  1. This is to COLIN RYAN. Would my great great grandfather Peter Crane (Crean)? Who was from the St James/Watling Street area of Dublin, born 1817, have spoken Irish?

    He was arrested in 1832, incarcerated at Kilmainham, transported to NSW in 1834, for ‘pickpocketing’, and was a chairmaker, thus, a skilled worker. His brother Patrick arrived in 1837, via the same transport company. He too, was a tradesman, a much sought-after tallow chandler. Their father, was a wheelwright, sadly, Christian name is unknown.

    I live near Wollonging after 11 years in Tasmania, but perhaos ought to have moved to the Mornington Peninsula, so that I could take part in all the wonderful Irish Studies and related cultural events that ocurr in Melbourne.I am obsessed with the subject and have a great library.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to read the green map of The Liberties. Is there a better copy?
    Thank You.
