Irish Immigration Throughout the Ages

Celtic Culture Class (last one of the season)
Immigration is a huge part of Ireland's history - first with the original peoples' crossing over to Eire. Later, it continued for centuries with others, such as the Fomorians and the Vikings. More recently there have been multiple immigrations OUT of Ireland, instigated by horrors such as the potato famine and current day, with Ireland's crash of the high tech economy.

Renee Hirschmiller has a medical emergency and will not be presenting. Instead, we are being honored by Lorene Stilwell, Fin Coll, and Rollin McRae giving us immigration stories and history that are sure to delight and entertain.

    It was a wonderful evening. Lorene led out with a story of Amergin, and his arrival on Irish soil. Fin followed with stories of those who left Ireland and came here, making good. Then Rollin talked about the large movement of the Irish into Texas. Finally everyone shared about their family's own immigration.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
