Travel Trip Ireland The Gathering

This May 18, 2013 photo shows a plaque on Dun Laoghaire pier in Country Dublin, Ireland, dedicated to "The Forgotten Irish" _ the thousands of young Irish who emigrated to Britain during hard times in the 1950s and 1960s. Many spent their working lives sending money to support their families in Ireland, yet were unable to afford to return themselves. As part of The Gathering, a yearlong event in Ireland to bring its diaspora home, a group of volunteers sponsored about 50 elderly emigrants on a weeklong visit, including an emotional wreath-laying ceremony next to a plaque in their honor on the pier.
