In this special episode of the Letter from Ireland show we start our journey in Cobh (Queenstown) in County Cork. We chat with the manager of the Cobh Heritage Centre who has his own immigration stories to tell. We then take the route across the Atlantic that our ancestors would have followed (just slightly upgraded!) to New York and meet with a group of our Green Room members on Ellis Island for Saint Patrick's Day - providing a day of stories, sight-seeing and much more to share.
All accompanied by lots of great Irish music along the way! Enjoy!
Music featured in this episode:
"The Holy Ground" performed by Mary Black.
"Thousands are Sailing" performed by The Pogues.
"Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears" performed by Celtic Woman.
