Product details

The title for my piece In The Sunshine comes from a quote from Irish journalist John Mitchel who was transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1850. He and William Smith O'Brien, one of the island's most famous convicts, had taken part in the Young Ireland rebellion in 1848.
When John Mitchel sailed into Hobart harbour as a convict in 1850 he wrote:
'The mountainous southern coast of Van Diemen's Land! It is a soft blue day; soft airs, laden with all the fragrances of those antarctic woods, weave an atmosphere of ambrosia around me. As we coast along over the placid waters, passing promontory after promontory, wooded to the water's edge, and "glassing their ancient glories in the flood" both sea and land seem to bask and rejoice in the sunshine.'
