AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - signed by the author on the title page.------------------------------------------ Few people are able to trace their family history far beyond their grandparents, yet June O'Carroll Robertson has managed to follow it through over four centuries - and in doing so has produced a vivid picture of changing times. The Carrolls of Lissenhall and Tulla in the County of Tipperary were descendants of the old Celtic kings of Ireland. ------Many of them held key military vantage points from which to record history in the making : Peninsula Campaign; the Boer War, both World Wars; and closer to home, the potato famine in Southern Ireland and the 'Troubles' which brought about the abandonment of the family's Irish home. Both men and women left behind personal accounts which bring much colour to the facts known about these events and June O'Carroll Robertson, the only living descendant, has intertwined these with her own interpretations to form a fascinating story.
