This research collection of Irish place names is a bi-product of Dr Dymphna Lonergan's research into the Irish language in Australia. It looks at those Irish pioneers whose history is reflected in place names in South Australia. It looks especially at the first ten years when many of the recognisable Irish place names in South Australia evolved. These place names tell an important story of pioneer Irish people who chose South Australia as their New Erin in the South Seas.
