Maureen Francis Doyle’s blog
Maureen Francis Doyle’s blog will highlight different aspects of Irish history, travel in Ireland, and how her book, A Journey in Time evolved. Maureen’s book was written from many years of research about her family. Specifically her great grandfather, John Doyle leaving Ireland during The Great Potato Famine and finding the courage to travel to an unknown country. The blog will showcase the different experiences that he went through to include famine, traveling steerage, the workhouses or poor houses of Ireland, the wives and children that he had and ultimately becoming a successful and admired gentleman farmer in Canada. It will also look at history from the early 1800’s thru to the early 1900’s and everything that he and his family experienced thru time to include the excitement of the railroad coming to Canada to travel to the wild west.
