by ionaddeirbhile

Sharing a link to view a new documentary:

Emigrant descendants of James Hack Tuke’s migration schemes from Counties Mayo and Galway during the “Forgotten Famine” of 1879-1882 pay tribute to the Quaker Philanthropist who rescued their ancestors from poverty to start new lives overseas. 

 There is an open invitation to join a post-show discussion with the film makers on Zoom on Sunday, October 25th at 7pm Irish Time, 3pm Eastern Standard Time in North America (more details via the link)
