Thread Name: Linen Industry Songs
Subject: RE: Linen Industry Songs
I believe people immigrated from France and perhaps Belgium and got involved in the flax/linen industry. One of my ancestors was a Devery, most likely from Clanmacnoise...Devery means from the village of Vriex in France I believe.

Also, one of my songs mentions growing flax in Dingle, which they did.
