Ireland and the Irish identity have been shaped by migration. People left and still leave the island for many reasons,  some pushed by circumstances at home, others pulled by opportunities abroad.  No two stories are the same, but many emigrants are linked by common motivations and shared experiences. Today these emigrants and their descendants number over 70 million people. They can be found in all four corners of the globe. Published with EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, this book tells their stories.
