Lis Edwards – Wearing the Green: Book Launch
Fri November 15 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Local author Lis Edwards’s book about Orange’s Dalton family, is due to be launched on Friday 15 November, 6.00pm at Duntryleague, Woodward Street.
The book will be titled: ‘Wearing the Green: The Daltons and the Irish Cause’ The launch will take place at Duntryleague, the former home of James Dalton Junior and his family. Lis says much has changed since she first thought about writing the book. “The more research I carried out, the more it seemed that the most important aspect of the book was the family’s deep commitment to the Irish causes of land rights and Home Rule,” Lis said. “Despite their huge success in Australia, they never forgot what it meant to be Irish and they never forgot the deep injustices that many Irish people endured.” The book traces the life stories of James Dalton Senior and his sons Thomas and James Junior and their families. It explains the background to James Senior’s crime and transportation to Australia and how he worked his way up to become a store owner and innkeeper.
