The Migrants’ Journey To Love
‘The Migrants’ Journey to Love by Noreen Hickey will be a delight to ordinary and honest folk of the Irish diaspora. It is full of precious details, experienced or passed on down through families, of the Coffin ships that left from Derry’s port on to Moville the down the River Foyle. In it we learn from real family tradition of the drama of Famine times and the urgency of emigration ‘To work and to earn, (and) see families supported. Sending money to Ireland to help those left behind’.
(Foreword Bishop John Keenan)
