Lady Gregory’s Diaspora by Sr. de Lourdes Fahy

The first in a series of online lectures celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Kiltartan Gregory Museum, this lecture is presented by Sr. de Lourdes Fahy, a founding member of the museum, and author of the book on the history of Kiltartan: Many Leaves, One Root.

Recently, Sr. de Lourdes said:

“When I retired I had more time for historical research, and then came Ireland Reaching out in 2010…eventually the Week of Welcomes was established in 2011, and since that time, Ireland Reaching Out has reached into every corner of Ireland...I became interested in the diaspora and Lady Gregory because so many people emigrated.”
