The Irish Outlander

Discovering the Irish Meaning of Home

The Irish are renowned for travelling the world, but where is home while they're abroad? In mixing his own story with those of other emigrants, Scott De Buitléir finds out what 'home' means to a people, for whom emigration is part of the national psyche. From crisp sandwiches to the smell of the Atlantic Ocean, The Irish Outlander is a love song to Ireland from afar, and a reminder to those abroad that they've not been forgotten.
