A exciting re-telling of the daring rescue/ escape of 6 Fenians organised by “Clan na Gael”, on the American ship the “Catalpa”, after being imprisoned in Fremantle Jail, Western Australia from 1868 to 1876. It was the last convict voyage to Australia.  Enjoy…

“Come all you screw warders and jailers,
Remember Perth Re-gatta Day.
Take care of the rest of your Fenians,
Or the Yankees will steal them away”
