At a loose end tonight? Well, here's the answer ...
Please join our friends from Strokestown Park House, and the National Famine Museum, and watch "Following in the Footsteps of Strokestown’s Famine Emigrants".
This is a documentary, presented by Professor Mark McGowan, following in the footsteps of emigrants from the Strokestown Park House estate of Major Denis Mahon in 1847, now home of the National Famine Museum.
He follows in their footsteps along the National Famine Way walking trail on the banks of the Royal Canal to Dublin, and then on to Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site and the Niagara region in Canada.
A post show discussion with the filmmakers will take place on ZOOM on Sunday, May 24th at 7pm Irish time, 2pm Eastern Standard Time in North America. Please find the film and invitation for the post show discussion below:
