Originally planned as a physical event bringing together Irish migrants, their descendants and multi-generational Irish communities the event is now in the process of being adapted for an online discussion concerning Ireland’s Great Famine and the migration it created. The discussion will take the form of curated online presentations and will be followed by a question and answer sessions open to the public via social media.
