Last month the focus was on tidying up and making more presentable three earlier additions to LibraryIreland.com, all of them relating to emigration.
The first, The Scot in Ulster, gives an account of the Scottish influx to Ireland during the 17th century, placing the immigration in historical context:
The second, The Scotch-Irish in America, describes how many of those settlers subsequently left to begin a life in the New World, more often than not as frontiersmen, and demonstrates the influence they had on the foundation of the United States:
The third book largely covers the later period of the mid-nineteenth century and the Irish exodus to Canada and the United States due largely to the famine of the 1840s. It describes in detail the horrific conditions that many of these emigrants had to face and assesses their progress in the New World:
The books have also been made available via payloadz.com as ebook downloads in .mobi format (for Kindle), .epub (for iBooks and other e-readers) and as a .pdf. There is a nominal charge for each which helps support the library. Over time we will add more Irish classics as ebook downloads, some of which will be free. To be alerted of new listings there is a ‘notify me when seller adds new items’ link to the right of the book details.
