Travels in Ireland: Part 2
This is Part 2 of a four part series by Johann Kohl published in 1844 which pictures Ireland after the the Catholic Emancipation and just prior to the Great Famine.
Part Two takes him to Tarbet, Tralee, Killarney, Bantry, Cork, Kilkenny and Waterford. As a German traveller he makes insightful comparisons, not only with the British mainland, but with other parts of Europe. He visits isolated settlements, hedge schools, Killarney and meets the gentry, traders, fisherman and small farmers along the way.
He comments on their struggles, lifestyles, habits, transport and customs and examines the development of food processing in Cork and the export trade of Waterford.
