Irish Lane settlement, pp. 48-55 PDF (2.6 MB)
c~r i7 The nineteenth-century home of Lawrence and Cecily Hawkins, and the birthplace of John Hawkins in Loughrea, County Galway, Ireland. When the landlord evicted the Hawkins during the Famine in Ireland, he had a Catholic priest deliver the notice-so as to soften the blow. The Hawkins clan settled near Irish Lane in 1852, southeast of the intersection of Caine and Whalen roads. Photo taken in the 1980's.
