Henry Healy on Wednesday 8th of May at 8pm to launch the 'Tulla Reaching out Weekend of the Welcomes' which will take place this 9th to 12 of August. The
Weekend of the Welcomes is welcoming home people that have family roots in Tulla.
Henry Healy will be launching the Tulla event and will also take the
opportunity to give a talk on the work that the project is doing nationally and in the Clare area. Healy has personal experience of how genealogy can turn up
some interesting links. Henry is a distant cousin of Barack Obama and has been a guest at the White House on several occasions.
Henry is community activation leader with the Ireland reaching out project and is delighted to get this opportunity to talk about the project and to engage with interested people from
across the county.
This initative is part of the national 'Ireland Reaching Out. project that
seeks to reconnect the Irish diaspora with their ancestoral parish by parish
through reverse genealogy. More details can be found at http://www.irelandxo.com/group/tulla-clare.
