Re: Irish/ Italian connection

Yes there is a very good community spirit in Burra, however it is a town that is dying a slow death. Many of the people that live there are now are retired as all the young ones are moving towards suburbia for work.

Re: Irish/ Italian connection

Moonta, Burra & Wallaroo are three country towns in South Australia where many Cornish miners from the UK came to make their fortune in the Copper Mines. The 1850's were the Boom years.
