The new post shares another of the brief podcasts that was originally prepared for Irish Community Level Patrons. Here we hear the first-person affidavit of Donegal woman Mary Doherty, who emigrated from Carndonagh, Co. Donegal to Boston in the 1840s. By the time she gave her statement in the 1890s, she had returned to Ireland. The podcast examines why she had to have this remarkable document created, and why she was now back home, almost fifty years after she had left in hopes of a new life.
