Out of Ireland: The Story of Irish Emigration to America
Everyone is invited! No charge!
Out of Ireland traces the story of flight from the famine-swept villages of 19th-century Ireland to the industrialized cities of 20th-century America. The program personalizes this transatlantic journey by focusing on the lives of eight immigrants, using letters they wrote home to Ireland describing their experiences in the New World. The movie is narrated by KellyMcGillis, with readings by Liam Neeson, Gabriel Byrne, Brenda Fricker, and Aidan Quinn.
