National Library of Ireland's exhibition Strangers to Citizens focuses on Irish migration to continental Europe from 1600 -1800. The exhibition features a selection of early 17th century Irish books from the Library’s rare book collection, including the original manuscript of Tadhg Ó Cianáin’s diary of The Flight of the Earls. Strangers to Citizens is on display through 2009.
An evening lecture series focusing on the themes covered in the exhibition will take place from January to March 2009. Find details on the National Library's events calendar.
