Department of Foreign Affairs Event at EPIC Museum.

On the 16th January the Irish Family History Centre was delighted to join with EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum in welcoming Irish Ambassadors and Diplomats from the Department of Foreign Affairs to the CHQ building.  

It was a wonderful occasion with the announcement of EPIC’s partnering with the Department to engage a historian in residence to aid the global Irish in finding out more about their heritage and culture.
