‘By1860, direct emigration from Tralee had declined. The development of specialised passenger shipping, coupled with increasingly rigorous passenger legislation, restricted the use of cargo vessels as emigrant ships.  The railway line from Tralee to Cork made Queenstown more easily accessible to Kerry emigrants and regular steamers from Tralee also ferried people to the large passenger liners in Liverpool.’ Helen O’Carroll, Kerry County Museum
