The Irish have been part of the world community since the early days of Europe’s history. The Irish are a people who are proud of their heritage, and rightly so. Throughout their history, political and natural events have given rise to great migrations of Irish citizens to nearly every country if the world. Today, you can hardly go anywhere in the world without finding someone who can claim Irish descent.
The fabric that makes up the Irish culture has been woven with adventure, conflict, history, music and so much more. The lives of each Irish man and woman, rich and poor alike, are the threads that combine to create a breath taking tapestry of Irish heritage. No story in this tapestry is unimportant; no individual person or family is insignificant. Every story and photograph speaks of a person’s struggle for a better life; of a dream of freedom and hope; of the aspirations to be the best and have the best.
