Shamrock Aborigines: the Irish, the Aboriginal Australians and their children

McGrath, Ann


The relationship between Shamrock Aborigines, or Aboriginal Australians with Irish descent and Aboriginal Australians and their descendents is discussed. The reasons as to why the offspring of Irish and Aboriginal parents and their descendents currently appear more willing to publicly entertain Irish ancestry and family associations than do the offspring of other European ethnic groups is highlighted.
