Below is an excerpt from the CD's
"Dunne's Irish Stew"
Dunn, March 2000)
This effort was originally begun to
support the "Clan Dunne of Ireland" Rally by providing the
capability of presenting a Slideshow of photographs of the people and
places around Clonaslee, Tinnahinch and County Laois, along with musical
background of short Irish music segments. As the work got underway, it was
decided to expand the effort to include a few files related to the history
and genealogy of the Duinn/Dunne/Dunn families from these areas. Given the
capability of a CD-ROM to contain an unbelievable amount of material, it
was finally decided to create a CD which could be used by students and
others in pursuing the research and study of Irish History and Genealogy,
using the realtively new capabilities of combining the use Computers and
the literrally inexhaustible information available thru use of the
When one realizes that there are several millions of Internet
"sites" that can be found thru the use of the numerous
"search engines" (almost all of which are free to computer
users), and which can be used for learning as well as teaching, the
possibilities for use are truly unbelievable. In the areas of History,
Archeology, Geography and Genealogical sites, a conservative estimate
would range into thousands. The capability of finding articles, data,
extracts and in many cases the entire contents of Books -- all while
sitting at home or in school with a computer and an Internet hook-up,
seems almost endless.
The final product which you are reading about now, is truly representative
of the name of "Dunne's Irish Stew".
It now includes several hundred files of different types. Most of them
relate in some way to the Dunnes and their surroundings, history,
genealogy, photographs, music, extracts from ancient books and
manuscripts, etc - along with a few utilities to assist in making their
use more readable and useful. On the light side, it also include files for
entertainment and enjoyment.
This CD-ROM is not a "program". It's a
reference, learning and teaching tool.
