  • The first book, Atlantic Canada's Irish Immigrants: A Fish and Timber Story, deals with the Irish pioneers of Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland).  In this major study Lucille traces the relocation of about ninety thousand Irish people to their new homes in Atlantic Canada. 


  • The second book, Ontario and Quebec's Irish Pioneers: Farmers, Labourers and Lumberjacks, deals with an even greater number of Irish people who settled in mid Canada from the eighteenth century.


  • The third book, Canada's Irish Pioneers - Their Story, describes the influx of Irish immigrants across  Canada,  starting with Newfoundland in the east and ending up in the Prairies and British Columbia. The book is packed full of data on sea crossings and settlements
