French Settlers in Ireland

Eddie Connolly is posting an interesting series of articles on his An Extraction of Reflection blog at, concerning French Settlers in Ireland. The articles are taken from the Ulster Journal of Archaeology from 1853-1854 and include potted histories of many families that settled in the north of the island, particularly around Lisburn in County Down.

The first parts of the series are available via the following links:

Part 1

Part 1 (continued)

Part 2 (continued)

Well worth a read!
