I recently decided to launch a YouTube Channel associated with this page. My intention is to explore sites in Ireland specifically from the perspective of the diaspora, and to explain something of these diaspora connections to viewers. This weekend we travelled to Cobh (formerly Queenstown) in Co. Cork, Ireland’s main emigrant port, to discuss some of the town and harbour’s links with the American Civil War. If you are interested in watching the video you can do so below, I hope you enjoy it! Please let me know what you think, and if you are interested in the concept please consider subscribing to the YouTube channel.

P.S. We are new to the trials of strong winds and editing software, so please bear with us in these early videos! Special thanks to Sara Nylund for all her hard work on it.
