Give Irish emigrants the recognition they deserve

Add their names to our exhibition

At EPIC we honour Irish emigrants by telling their stories and keeping their memories alive. It’s a place where you can come to acknowledge them, their journeys, their struggles and their achievements.

When they left Ireland they took something very important with them, something that would give them strength, their identity, their power to change the world and something they would pass on to you – their name.

Your name is a powerful thing

Now we’re inviting you to be a part of our The Power of a Name exhibition by adding your emigrant family member's name to our Legacy Wall. Simply give us their name, where they emigrated from and the year they left. We will project it onto the wall of EPIC and it will become part of our exhibition. You will also have a chance to win a personalised genealogy consultation with the Irish Family History Centre!
