This is a true story of Irish families at the turn of the twentieth century, struggling to make a go of a new crop in order to improve the lives of ordinary people and control the massive problem of unemployment and its consequence - emigration.
The story is a tragic one in many ways, but it paints a picture of life in Ireland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A time when Ireland, and the world, was changing rapidly and many struggled with these changes.
In telling this story, author Liam Nevin has made available to the general public important material previously unpublished. This includes records kept by his late grandfather, John Nevin who was very much a part of the Randlestown experiment.
