    My Great-Grandmother Bridget Cassidy was born in Monaghan in1830. She was convicted of stealing a quilt from her employer and was transported to Australia in1848. Her father was listed as John Cassidy but no record of her mothers name has been found. Any descendant of Bridget or anyone having any further information on her I would be grateful to hear from you
