Book - 2010
Rate this:
From the arrival of the First Fleet to the present, Irish immigrants and their descendants have been at the centre of Australian life. In Sinners, Saints & Settlers, author Richard Reid and photographer Brendon Kelson take the reader on a journey through the Irish experience in Australia, visiting locations right across the nation where the Irish story unfolds. The book concentrates on the period 1788 to 1921, when the Irish presence in Australia was proportionately at its most influential and visible. It spans the years between the Irish rebellion of 1798, which had a profound effect on the emerging colony of New South Wales, and 1921, the achievement of modern Irish independence.
