    The painting that serves as a header for this page is by Pat Dan Rogers, ‘King of Tory Island’ in Donegal.

    The rest of this page is to commemorate all the young folks who were compelled to leave their homes in Donegal and elsewhere for Philadelphia in the early 1830s. Posts from living relatives about these stalwarts would be most welcome.

    BTW Note how well the colours capture the dusk of the northern night sky. Also note the whimsical detail of the outside gas cylinder that feeds into the gable of the house, a sure sign that amenities have still not arrived on Tory Island. Also, a great place for a lock-in with a plentiful supply of poidin (poteen).
