Exiled Irish story

Researcher 47's insight:

More exiled Irish - extensive list ranges from 1572 to 1860.  Do they have anything in common?  Religion, politics other?  What did they do while exiled?  Why were they exiled?

William Smith O'Brien

Researcher 47's insight:

What about the Irish who were exiled for their nationalist tendencies abroad.  What did they do for the places they ended up.  See here how W S O'B was so admired by the Irish miners in Australia.

 

He wrote the constitution for Tasmania and also for at least one other country in Europe

Gold was discovered in 1851 and over 100,000 Irish immigrants made their way to Australasia over the next decade. By 1861, 16 per cent of the population of eastern Australia was Irish.
