Sligo genealogy tour

The County Sligo Heritage & Genealogy Centre and Wild West Irish Tours  are offering an exclusive guided tour package as part of The Gathering 2013.

It's called the Emigrant Trail Tour and it will trace the steps of the Irish emigrant from the family cottage, to the workhouse, to the “American Wake” and to the very shipping channel and shores they departed from on their voyage to North America.

The Emigrant Trail Tour will run five times between May and September. Each will be a 6-day/5-night tour, except for the tour running in June, which is combined with Wild West Irish Tour’s regular 9-day tour.

For more information about dates and costs, email or phone USA: 571-236-9650 or Ireland: 85 134 9300.
