Selling maize to raise funds for Hospice

From Afternoons, 1:45 pm on 9 February 2024

If you've ever wondered about your Irish ancestry - who they were, where they were from in Ireland, why they came to New Zealand - there's a series of seminars coming to Aotearoa that will help you trace your Irish family history

The seminars are aimed for beginners and active family historians, and they're run by the Irish non-profit organisation, Ulster Historical Foundation.

They're sending staff out from Belfast to Australia and New Zealand in February and March to run the sessions.

Fintan Mullan is one of the people presenting the seminars, and has just arrived in Australia. He speaks to Jesse.
