Some of our 2nd Year Students recently plotted where their relations had emigrated to around the world in recent years. We found out that Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, Brothers & Sisters were spread out all over the world. The main destinations for Irish emigrants are the U.S., Australia, & U.K.
Other countries that our relations have emigrated to include France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Jersey.
Stickers were placed on a map of the World and a map of Europe. Lines were then drawn from Cork to the various locations marked on the map. Each coloured sticker represented the number of people in a foreign country from each family.
A key was drawn to show what each colour represented. They were numbered 1 to 7 and 8+.
See the photos below for the results.
