Dia duit, Is é mo ainm Margaret O'Shea. Chuid is mó daoine glaoch orm Maggie.

Hello, My name is Margaret Laura O'Shea.  Most people call me Maggie.

My story is a simple one.

I was born on December 15th, 1832, in Midleton, County Cork, Ireland. 

It was the height of the great famine and my parents thought they would be better off in the new world.  Either in America or in Australia. 

Before they left they asked me to take care of my mother's parents.  Which I did dutifully until they were lost like so many others.

It was a very cold hard winter in 1847, I was scrounging around doing odd jobs for food but it wasn't nearly enough food to sustain a dog or cat, let alone a human girl.  That was when I met Siobhan and Liam.

And a new chapter in my life was to start...

100 Years Ago.... The Easter Rising of 1916

My Transformation

 Trudging along the road from Innishannon to Cork, It seemed a much longer road then what it is now, all those long years ago.  I had overheard a conversation in Innishannon that there maybe work and now that the grandparents had passed away, there was nothing keeping me in the village.  Trying to keep momentum and the horrible thoughts of dying alongside the road at bay.   My only chance at survival was to make it to Cork or maybe Cobh.  Maybe work in a workhouse and either leave Ireland…See More

My Human Life

By Margaret Laura O’Shea Life was not easy for the Irish during the 1840’s, mine was no different.My father was a shop keeper in a small town.  My mother kept the books for him.  We the children took pride in helping him stock the shelves, sweep the floors, and other such things.In 1845, the first wave of the great famine hit Ireland.  My father could see that it may be a good time to move out of the area or leave the country all together.  He decided to close the doors and buy as many tickets…See More
