Thread Name: ADD: The Kerrigan Boys (Edward Harrington)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Kerrigan Boys (Edward Harrington)
Based on the Jeffery lads from Yabba. Edward Harrington was their cousin. Their dad, Sam Jeffery, who married into the O'Brien clan, died at 59.

Their grandfather who owned property all over Melbourne left a huge inheritance. The land would be worth approx $220M today.

This occurred in 1907. Heard stories of their adventures growing up. 2 generations to make a fortune, one to spend it. I grew up on the farm where it all occured.

We still gamble and drink particularly well
