“Luck of the Irish” shipwreck off Australia

IrishCentral recently published an engrossing article about an 1835 shipwreck off the coast of Australia. The convict-transport ship was carrying 250 prisoners from Dublin and Cork.

The story comes from a book written by Babette Smith, The Luck of the Irish: How a Shipload of Convicts Survived the Wreck of the Hive to Make a New Life in Australia.
