The community of County Clare is this year celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Clare Community in New York.
If you have seen Martin Scorsese Film “ Gangs of New York” you will know something of the historical connection between the Irish and Manhattan’s infamous Five Points district. The local community in Kenmare hope to re-connect with some of the living relatives of the Lansdowne Estate emigrants during the 2013 Gathering festival.
The Carnegie Arts Centre in Kenmare will also be hosting a play in which life in the 1850’s and the story of emigration will shown, and a documentary about the Lansdowne Estate.
