The Story of the Irish in BC is a project that captures the stories of Irish families living in BC. Funded by the Consulate General of Ireland in Vancouver, the purpose of the project is to connect personal Irish stories to a larger historical narrative of the Irish in BC and to share their experiences in BC. If you are interested in adding your family story, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
