Why did nine brothers and sisters from a large Irish family take dangerous ocean voyages to the Australian colonies, on the other side of the globe? They came alone or in groups over 23 years and some of them were children as young as 13 or 14. Most never saw their parents or their birth country again.

There must be hundreds of descendants of the Irish Carrs living today. How much do we know of our ancestors? Where did they come from and why did they come? What did they do when they arrived? Life in those times was so different to the world we know. It is hoped that the reader will enjoy their amazing stories.
