Rolling back the Road: A Journey in Irish Traveller Family History

Monday 7 December, 7pm
Platform: Zoom

Speakers: Tony Hennessy and Michael Collins

In recent years genealogist Tony Hennessy M.A.G.I. has partnered with various Traveller groups and individuals to explore their family histories and present their research findings in the form of large family trees.  In December 2019 three such family trees were presented to the National Library of Ireland.  In this talk Tony looks back at some of those family trees and discusses Traveller genealogy in general. Tony will be joined by Michael Collins of Pavee Point whose own family tree includes one hundred photographs and who speak about what he learned about his family history.
