Ireland is a great place to visit – perhaps anytime of the year – but both our glorious trips have been in September. In 2016 there’s a secondary reason to plan travel in September: the Diaspora of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Don’t you love the title? Scheduled for September 24-26 in Ennis, this will be the third International Family History Conference sponsored by the Clare Roots Society. The keynote speaker will be well-known genealogy-blogger Dick Eastman, who is making his very first trip to Ireland. Other featured presenters are Dr. Bruce Durie, Dr. Gavin Wilk, John Grenham and Pauline Cass from Australia.
