Place names: a tool for finding the Irish in South Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Little of the Irish South Australian story has been available in the public domain. Even in historical circles, research into Irish South Australia has been sparse, and mostly concentrated on post-Famine times: especially the arrival of the Irish orphan girls in the late 1840s and the 1850s. A study of place names in South Australia, however, reveals the presence of the Irish from the beginning.
