Dear Reader,

For some months, Tinteán has been publishing articles on the young women who came to Australia under what was known as the Earl Grey Scheme. The story of Eliza McCready in this month’s edition is an example of the materials which have been supplied to us by family descendants who have done their own research in that area. This series has benefitted from the expertise of one of our editors, Trevor McClaughlin, who has worked closely with the descendants and whose expertise in the area of The Earl Grey scheme is unparalleled. Indeed, it was Trevor’s suggestion to embark on Tinteán‘s first ever series of articles.

Statistics on the site indicate that these stories have been popular with our readers and we are pleased to say that we have a few more which we will be publishing in upcoming editions.

The editorial team is planning to commission some articles on the influence of the Irish in Australia’s legal history. If you have some suggestions for persons of note, good legal stories or research in this area, and know of writers with knowledge of the subject, we’d be very grateful. If you have some suggestions for articles, please contact us through info@tintean.org.au.

In the meantime, we wish all our readers, in whatever country you live, a safe exit from this worldwide threat to our health. Readers in Australia may note in Sean Farrell’s article in this edition the difference between the death rates from the virus in Australia compared with the numbers elsewhere, including Ireland.

  1. Dear Editor,
    I’m on your subscription list and replied to the request for ideas on Irish in Australia’s legal system. It’s a lengthy response with some ideas from my own research and my manuscript of a book I’m writing on my famine emigrant ancestors and their dealing with Irish lawyers in colonial days. However my email to editor@tintean.org.au was returned. Was it blocked by your spam filter?

    Please let me know.

    Kind Regards
    Patrick Morrisey
