NOTES

[1] Mullen: Allen Mullen, or Moline, M.D., an eminent anatomist of his time, was born in the north of Ireland, in the middle of the 17th century. He took his medical degree in the University of Dublin in 1684, removed to London in 1686, and was elected a member of the Royal Society. Harris's Ware gives a list of six surgical treatises from the pen of Allen Mullen, published between 1682 and 1689; he died in 1690.

[2] Moylan: Stephen Moylan, Brigadier-General in the United States revolutionary army, was born in Ireland in 1734. He was one of the first to answer the call to arms against the British at Cambridge, Massachusetts; and who distinguished himself in many of the operations of the war. A man of education and gentlemanly address, he for a short time acted as aide-de-camp to Washington. He was made Brigadier-General by Brevet, in November, 1783, and after the peace occupied some civil posts in Pennsylvania. He died on the 11th April, 1811. His brother was Catholic Bishop of Cork.

"Beautiful, different and touching. Short, sweet and lovely. Made me cry. You sense that this is a true story veiled in the guise of fiction as are all the best stories."

Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.

Annals of the Famine in Ireland

Annals of the Famine in Ireland

Annals of the Famine in Ireland, by Asenath Nicholson, still has the power to shock and sadden even though the events described are ever-receding further into the past. When you read, for example, of the poor widowed mother who was caught trying to salvage a few potatoes from her landlord's field, and what the magistrate discovered in the pot in her cabin, you cannot help but be appalled and distressed.

The ebook is available for download in .mobi (Kindle), .epub (iBooks, etc.) and .pdf formats. For further information on the book and author see details ».

Ireland's Welcome to the Stranger

Ireland's Welcome to the Stranger

This book, the prequel to Annals of the Famine in Ireland cannot be recommended highly enough to those interested in Irish social history. The author, Mrs Asenath Nicholson, travelled from her native America to assess the condition of the poor in Ireland during the mid 1840s. Refusing the luxury of hotels and first class travel, she stayed at a variety of lodging-houses, and even in the crude cabins of the very poorest. Not to be missed!
