Product description: This is an index of the 6666 Irish transported convicts and exiles and their ship of arrival to late 1820. This work was developed under the working title ‘The Convicts Transported from Ireland 1791-1820’. However, the records revealed a terrible Irish tragedy. Too many arrivals in Australia were not convicts at all. Many of them were placed aboard ships and despatched for no greater purpose than to rid Ireland of its Patriots.
