New Geneva: Ireland's Lost City

In the 1780s work began on a new city in Ireland. Called New Geneva it was designed to provide a new home for exiled revolutionaries from Switzerland.

Today there are few traces of this now lost city. This masks a fascinating and dark history. When New Geneva failed, life there descended into barbarism and brutality.

I have posted images of New Geneva to my new WhatsApp and Telegram channels
