The Muldowney Family lived in Killamuck Townland in Abbeyleix, County Laois, Ireland from 1890 until the 1960s. The family meandered the trials of family life in post-famine Ireland and into the emerging new century that held new challenges not just for themselves but also for an Ireland that was itself experiencing its own changes as it negotiated its way through independence. Headed by Martin Muldowney and his wife Margaret (Hogan), the couple benefitted from a caring Landlord and a healthy location as they welcomed thirteen children. This publication is the story of those thirteen children and their journey as they left the home one by one. With infant deaths, pauper's graves, presidential handshakes, Coroner's inquests and court cases against the King, the Muldowney family experienced more than most.
