Thank you to everyone who responded to our 80th Anniversary Archive project by sending us your stories of a favourite Irish born ancestor. Submissions to the project are now closed.
We were delighted to receive stories from all over the world, reciting tales of ancestors lives. Some lives were lived, and told, briefly but brightly whilst the lives of others stretched into old age, often as the head of extended families growing up far from their Irish roots, their stories enriched with many side tales of family lore and even precious pictures.
We will be working on assembling the stories into themed chapters and publishing them in batches on a special section of our website in the coming months, available to all.
