Travels in Ireland: Part 3
This is Part 3 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.
Kohl's journey took him through the four provinces including Dublin, Limerick, Waterford and Belfast. Part Three took him through Wexford, Enniscorthy, Avoca, Glendalough and Dublin where he discussed innovations in education and infant schools as well as reflections on the '98 Rebellion and agrarian crime. He visited the Vale of Avoca and Glendalough, reflecting on Thomas Moore as well as early Christian Ireland.
In Dublin he encountered Daniel O'Connell at a repeal meeting where he also examined urban poverty and the workhouses, as well as Dublin's museums and squares.
