Are there anymore
pictures of Joe? I would like to see better closeup pictures, so
that I can see his features. - Thanks for
the comments Kathy the closest picture of Joe is a picture entitled,
Byrne: After Hanging, I cannot find the book I have a picture of
it in but when I do I'll add it, but if you want the explanatory
version of Joe's features, listed on his prison record it states:
5 feet 9 1/2 inches

Congratulations on a very different website. It's very creative
and interesting.What do you think of the publicity shots of Orlando
Bloom as Joe? Personally I think he really looks the part.Keep up
the good work! - Thanks so much Matthew,
I am glad I am getting in some excellent comments, now to your question,
Orlando Bloom, as Joe, I think he looks super special, he has all
the feature's that Joe had, I agree with you mate. Good stuff &
thanks! If I can get the rights to a shot of Orlando I will put
it up! - Mike.

G'day Mike, Great
to see you new site up and running. All of us
that have met you know how passionate you are about 'the boys'.
great to see a young bloke who isn't obsessed with Nintendo or
Playstation - instead, you're out there researching and promoting
Australian history. Such a fascinating subject. I agree that Joe
is a very
interesting charachter. 'The Friendship
That Destroyed Ned Kelly ' - the
bible may I add! really
got me interested in Joe and Aaron, and their tragic story. It also
hooked on the magnificent Woolshed Valley. I wish you all the best
luck, keep at it and I'm sure that we will see you at the new museum
Beechworth. Congratulations mate! - Thank
you so much Matty, your sure you'll see me in Beechworth, Mate you
bet your bottom dollar you will see me in Beecworth! I owe you and
Doctor Rock heaps, thanks fella's I really love you blokes! - Mike.

Joe was the ' Murderer ' of the gang
To Joe Online,
I just wanted to
inform you that Joe Byrne was a murdering, thuggish thief, who killed
Aaron Sherritt in clod blooded murder. I don't think this beast
deserves a website. - Unfortunately there
are people like this dickhead in world, Joe Byrne, in my personal
opinion, was pushed ' over the edge ' and was forced to kill Aaron
by, as Joe puts it in his letter to Aaron " the Lloyds and
Quinns want you shot but I say no you are on our side" Anyone
want to reply to this? Feel Free!.......

It is great to see you doing a site for Joe Byrne. Despite his low
profile, Joe's role in the Kelly story should not be underestimated
or undervalued. No matter what is said about Joe in retrospect -
should not forget that Ned respected and trusted him utterly, and
that he played a main role in the legend of the Kelly gang. It will
be great to get a closer look at him and hopefully from your work
this site, we will all get a better understanding of Joe the man.
Good luck with the new site (where on earth do you find the time
two?). Plus, I wish you the best of luck with your move to Glenrowan.
Keep up the hard work Mike - it is all worth it.
Cheers, Nicky :) - Thanks Nicky; Thanks for
the safe move to Glenrowan, Well, time it's one thing I can't get
enough of! but it's there, I hope to answer all the up - coming
questions relating Joe. Again thanks for the comments! Mike.

What a ' good ' Site
I am amazed in the
speed that this website went up, it was only one page one day, and
next it was ready to go.
I am a year 12 student
and I am doing my HSC, and un - fortunately I can not do Ned Kelly
as my teacher, said there is too much info on him. So after seeing
this website, I dedicded I would do it on Ned's best friend Joe
Byrne. I have a few questions I hope you will be able to answer:
Was Joe byrne's horse named Music or Mirth? , Many sources say different.
Joe's horse was music,
but Music obeyed both Ned and Joe, for example during Ned's last
stand, Music walked between Ned and his attacking police, as if
Joe was offering his mate one last chance to escape, Ned pushed
her on, she began to trot off, when constable Arthur carefully took
aim, and gunned Music down, when everything was over Music had dissapered.
Ned's horeses name was Mirth.
How did Ned Kelly & Joe Byrne meet?
Well, this one is
a tricky one, in the Last Outlaw, Ian Jones' 4 part series, Jim
Kelly seemed to have picked up Joe and Aaron, after their stint
in gaol, for Illegal possesion of a cow hide. As Jim put it in the
Last Outlaw, "...I picked up these desperates, fresh out of
Beechworth Gaol..." they were met at " Burkes hole saw
mill " But Joe, Aaron and the Kelly brothers were never in
Beechworth at the same time. So my therory it was more than likely
What is your explantion, on why Joe Byrne killed Aaron Sherritt?
I think personally,
Joe was pushed over the edge, of everything, hassled by the Quinns
who wanted Aaron dead, and also Tom Lloyd who, thought Aaron was
betraying them, but I don't think Joe wanted to kill Aaron, I think
it was more than likely, a sper of the moment thing, and Joe had
lost all sense of life.

No worries Willaim, hope I have helped - Mike.
that's crap only
joking - yes thanks Shannon, but I am glad
you were only Joking - Mike
Is this Joe Byrne?
questions have been raised about the picture from Ian Jones's and
may I say My Bible, that book is " The friendship that destroyed
Ned Kelly " There has been many disputes whether it is Joe
or not, so now JoeOnline gives YOU the chance to vote.....
