Joseph(Grandpa)My Grandpa migrated from Ireland in 5th of October 1958 it took him 1 month to get here from England. He spent 31 years in Ireland before he left in that time he was in the Irish army. He left on a boat called the Fair Sky it had a pool, dance floor, a bar and a lounge room.
Why Some people came from Ireland.
My grandpa came because he wanted to have an adventure but other people came from Ireland for different reasons.
The Irish migrated to Victoria in vast numbers. They were the largest immigrant group after the English from 1854 to World War I. By 1871, when the community numbered 100,468, more than one in four Victorians was born in Ireland. Mostly due to the Irish famine.
