transcribed from the Irish Industrial Journal --------------------------- Wednesday 10 October 1849 Deportation of Paupers Omagh Union The Guardians of this Union have sent 19 orphan girls from the workhouse, last week, provided with a suitable outfit, as emigrants to Australia, the Government providing them with free passage from Plymouth, to which port their expenses are defrayed by the Union. Four orphan girls, from the Gortin Workhouse, were also sent at the same time, provided with a similar outfit Tyrone Constitution Thursday evening 112 young women, selected from the workhouses of Coleraine, Armagh, Newtownlimavady, Antrim, Ballymoney, Larne, Cookstown, and Banbridge, embarked on board ' the Prince' steamer, for Dublin, previous to their final embarkation for Sydney. The clean and respectable appearance of the poor girls was most creditable to themselves and their unions. Sixty girls left Enniskillen Workhouse, Wednesday last, for Australia. They were well clad, and selected from amongst all the inmates for their excellent conduct.
