1856, Dublin City. Over 3,600 soldiers sit down for a celebratory banquet after a hard fought Crimean war. But where does one find a building large enough to seat these many people? A warehouse is converted for this purpose, and 150 years later, it houses one of the most unique emigration museums of the world. But what if I told you that all of this is connected to India, and no less to our National Anthem. This week, in the eighth episode of the series, Ireland Untravelled, we discover the stories of three Irish women, all children of emigrating Irishmen and women, who left an indelible mark on the world. Tune in, and discover how museums and memories are evolving for a world where migration is the ongoing reality.
