150 years ago John and Bridget Delaney and six of their children landed at Port Fairy. They were followed a decade later by Bridget?s brother Edmund Dunne and his family. What did they leave in Ireland? Why did they come to Australia? What did they find here? How did they respond? What happened to their descendants? This book strives to answer these questions. As the story unfolds illegal whiskey distilling was pursued skilfully by some of the clan near Delaney?s Corner but dairy farming became the primary occupation.The companion volume Delaney Family Tree contains details of the eight generations of descendants in Australia.
