The Ulster American Folk Park gives the children a great insight into life in the Nineteenth Century, in both Ireland and in America, as well as the journey twixt the two.  The P7 children had a very hands-on World Book Day as they relived Peggy's journey from Ireland to America during the Famine of the 1840s.  Did you know that there are approximately 80 million people in the world who claim Irish heritage (the Irish diaspora), that is about 12 or 13 times the population of Ireland today!  Maith muid!
