Going Home: Tipperary Roots

In this account of her visit to Nenagh and Cloughjordan in North Tipperary, Judith Colbert explores the legacy of the Irish in London Township in Ontario, Canada where she grew up and describes her successful quest to find her ancestral home in Ireland. She acknowledges the generosity of the people who made her discovery possible and illustrates her story with photographs that capture the old and the new. 
More than a search for family origins, Going Home: Tipperary Roots shows that migration both transforms culture and preserves its essence.
