Across the Waves: The Seafaring Irish Exhibition
Have you ever wondered what life was like aboard a ship for nineteenth-century emigrants or how seventeenth century Irish merchants began their trading in wine, salt and wool? This new exhibition will explore the history of the Irish at sea and their stories of adventure, opportunity and tragedy.

Epic, The Irish Emigration Museum has a fascinating program of events taking place throughout the weekend inspired by the theme of Storytelling, including ‘Across the Waves: The Seafaring Irish’, a panel discussion with History Ireland Hedge School, family craft and interactive story workshops with award winning writer, Sarah Webb, and a songs, stories and performance event entitled Gnás: ‘Thousand Are Sailing’ which explores the theme of emigration which runs through the Irish folk arts.
