Description:

On May 22, from 5 to 9 p.m. in Fr. Madden Hall, the Great Famine Roadshow is holding a free open house event. The Great Famine Roadshow holds a series of open house events in the United States and Canada that bring together Irish emigrants, their descendants, and members of their communities to share family memories and stories of coming from Ireland to North America, especially during the period of the Great Hunger and afterwards. "This Roadshow will provide a unique opportunity for Irish-Americans and Irish-Canadians to share their stories, strengthen their sense of ancestry, and historical and current Irish connections. All are welcome to these events," said Caroilin Callery, a Director of the National Famine Museum in Strokestown Park, Ireland.

The Great Famine Voices Roadshow will be hosted by the National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park, Ireland, and the Irish Heritage Trust, an independent charity. The Roadshow will be held in partnership with Ireland's Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University, the American Irish Historical Society, and the University of Toronto. It is funded by the Government of Ireland Emigrant Support Programme.

For queries, or if you would like to contribute a family memory or story online, contact Dr. Jason King at the Irish Heritage Trust: faminestudies@irishheritagetrust.ie.
