The Breaking and Laveing the Countery exhibition opens today at Bailieborough Library, Co Cavan.
It covers 19th-century emigration and focuses on the numbers of people leaving the county, their parish origins, their various destinations abroad, and the system of chain migration. Real-life emigrant stories illustrate the the lives that statistical information fails to illuminate.
The exhibition is open during normal Library hours until the end of December and admission is free.
Venue: Bailieborough Library, Market House, Bailieborough, Co Cavan.
