The Irish and the World – a new book by EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.
For centuries the people of Ireland have been departing the shores of their homeland, setting out to the four corners of the world, in search of opportunities, adventure and a place to call home. This book is an engaging guide, revealing the powerful, extraordinary stories of the Irish emigration around the world, from early times to the modern day.
The book also features the history of 200 year old CHQ Building where the museum is based as well as the history of the great Crimean Banquet in Dublin of 1856. Stories of the voyages of the Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship and of the Irish Family History Centre operated by our genealogy partners Eneclann close out the book.
