The Forgotten Irish

‘The Forgotten Irish’ is a community of Irish people living over two thousand miles from Ireland in Newfoundland, Canada, whose ancestors left their home country six generations ago.  Have a look at this Radharc program from RTÉ’s archives, looking at a colony of Irish people for whom time has stood still.

A group in Newfoundland is working with the Power Clan Gathering steering committee in Ireland to facilitate air travel and accommodations for the Power Clan event next June. The package will also include optional tours to other parts of Ireland. For more information, email PowerClanNL@gmail.com
