Irish Lives Remembered - Feb 2013 issue

The February 2013 issue of Irish Lives Remembered is now available online at - and this month I'm looking forward to a good read as it's paying a visit to good aul' Port Lairge, better known as Waterford. (There's even a picture showing where I had my wedding reception on one page!). This one's a real handy primer for me, as my wife's lot come from Carrick-on-Suir and Carrickbeg, on either sides of the River Suir, and with the latter in County Waterford. I've sussed out the resources in the main town, but the Waterford offerings are still on my to-do list, and from the sounds of it there's tonnes to get stuck into on my next trip over!

Elsewhere in the magazine Jayne Shrimpton examines Cartes de Visite, Fiona Fitzsimons previews Who Do You Think You Are Live (it's like Back to Our Past, but with added steroids and no mercy), Maureen Wlodarczyk tells a tale of an orphan at Grosse Iles (the quarantine station in Canada), and there are various other offerings on the Famine, the Gathering, a Sligo nurse who escaped Mountjoy, plenty more from Shauna Hicks on the missing Irish down under, and more. And there's an article entitled The Irishman who Painted The Zulu Dawn. I'm just going to savour the title of that one for a bit before I even read it - magic!

And it's free... Read online or download in PDF format for your PC or tablet.
