Almost 70 million people around the world claim Irish descent, an incredible achievement for a tiny country on the periphery of Europe. Just 300 miles top to bottom, Irelands influence has spread across the United States, Australia, the UK, Europe and the world. A history of emigration and a culture steeped in storytelling has spread Ireland’s people to the four corners of the world. People of Ireland is a project which is established to tell the stories of the people of Ireland. To bring the community together and give them a voice. The stories of those who live here, the Irish abroad and the millions of Irish whose family’s journey to new countries like the United States make them part of our community.
Stories of a modern, strong, liberal, tech savvy people that continue to punch above their weight on the global stage. We are storytellers but we are first and foremost Irish – one community, one people. The People of Ireland.
