Where can I find the LTPF lists? I know such lists exists but I am not familiar with their content...
Location: [LTPF list of continents]? Europe Inside? Outside? this Geographical features relevant? slightly Seaside? yes Mountain? Plain? no the the rest

Time: [LTPF list of centuries]? 1800s

Is he a well known person? no Is his nationality relevant? may be helpful, but it's not crucial to the solution European? yes Polish? no

The lists are more of a shortcut, so instead of saying "Is he from Italy? Greece? Spain? UK? Sweden? Poland?... etc" we can say "is he from [LTPF list of European countries]?"

So, European, outside, seaside mildly relevant, plants relevant... Is he from [LTPF list of European countries]? Were they in danger? Of drowning? Being caught by fire? In danger of losing their life anyway? War relevant?

Edible part from the food: leaf? stem? root? tuber?

Is it normally eaten raw? Or rather cooked? Is it still eaten today? By humans? Animals? Both?

Is it his trip to Australia related to finding food? Did he realize before leaving that he has indeed found food, so there was no reason for him to leave anymore? Did he ever return from Australia?

So, even if his purpose to travel to Australia was related to finding food and despite realizing that he had found food at home, he decided to proceed with his journey, correct? Did he have a secondary purpose for going to Australia? Did he think the food he found was not enough? That it will be depleted in the near future?

Is the vegetable a legume?

So, even if his purpose to travel to Australia was related to finding food and despite realizing that he had found food at home, he decided to proceed with his journey, correct? no, I think there is a FA. It's established that he acquired food in Ireland, he was aware that he had food and the journey took place as a final result. Did he have a secondary purpose for going to Australia? still the FA Did he think the food he found was not enough? no That it will be depleted in the near future? no

Is the vegetable a legume? I wouldn't call it that way, but it may be regarded somehow similar. I consulted Wikipedia and it's classified differently.

What about the exact type of food, you can well solve the puzzle without guessing exactly what plant he acquired.

Balin:
Did he sail FA south around the African coast? Around the Americas towards the Pacific? I guess the former, and it is not really relevant. The trip is a consequence, almost whole story happened earlier

Sundowner:
Did he steal the food and was deported to Van Diemens' Land?

that's it. With this slight difference that he was deported to Botany Bay, not Van Diemens' Land. And here goes the story as I know it:
***********SPOILER****************
By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young girl calling
Michael they are taking you away
For you stole Trevelyans corn
So the young might see the morn
Now a prison lay waiting in the bay

Chorus:
Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing
We had Dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young man calling
Nothing matters Mary when you're free
Against the famine and the crown
I rebelled they caught me down
Now you must raise our child with dignity

Chorus

By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Or she live in hope and pray
For her love in Botany bay
It's lonely round the fields of Athenry

Congrats to Sundowner for the solve, and Balin, Rbruma and Doriana for their great work

Last line of the first verse should be: "Now a prison SHIP lay waiting in the bay".

Great puzzle!

Is that a song? Can you post a link to it? Because just from looking at the words, it sounds beautiful.

BAlin, it's 'Fields of Athenry', lovely song. The Dubliners did it beautifully, as you can hear in this clip. Just LOVE Irish folk music!!

I'm glad you enjoyed my first puzzle.
As to the song, I just learned recently that it's been adapted for Irish football (american football) supporters :-)
