Diarmaid Ó Catháin has been interested for many years in the ‘Wild Geese’ – the Irish émigrés in continental Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.  The Irish connection with France was particularly
strong in that period, and traces of those links are still to be found in France today.  This talk will give some examples.
