This genealogy and family history exemplifies the Irish diaspora of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. From an Irish foot soldier in a British regiment of the early 1800s he, his children, and their descendants became significant persons living in almost all the major English-speaking countires and the British Empire: Ireland, India, New Zealand, England, Australia, South Africa as well as the United States.Notable contributions were and are being made by descendants in art, literature, science, medicine, music, business, industry, and academia. Many have continued the precedent of active military roles to maintain the ideals of freedom in the face of tyranny. This Quirke genealogy and famly history is a documented Irish family's contribution to the world from within and without the Island.
