Emigration & Immigration

Emigration to foreign lands is the strongest storyline in Ireland's compelling history, responsible for the Irish diaspora: 80,000,000 people worldwide claim to be descendants of Ireland. Whether due to times of famine or war or economic turmoil, emigration has never distanced itself from our recent past, forever a hanging shadow of times gone by and families lost and parted. Emigration articles, records, and statistics will feature here, as well as immigration features, such as the Jewish population of Ireland and their origins.
