Description - How the Finnegans Saved the Ship by Jackie French

Inspired by a true story, How the Finnegans Saved the Ship tells the story of one Irish family's migration to Australia in 1913.


Mrs Finnegan and her seven children have to leave Ireland and join Mr Finnegan in Australia. They board a ship which doesn't look as if it can move from the harbour and the Finnegans are nervous ... it is the year after the Titanic sank, after all.

Mrs Finnegan is busy during the journey saving the ship from whales and other possible disasters. But as they sail round the tip of Africa, an iceberg looms out of the ocean.

Can the Finnegans save the ship this time?

Inspired by a true story, How the Finnegans Saved the Ship tells the story of one Irish family's migration to Australia in 1913.
