Culture Minister Carál Ni Chuilin, is encouraging people to trace their ancestors and family history.
Speaking at Parliament Buildings where she addressed a group of international researchers exploring their Irish roots, the Minister said:
“Researching family history is proving to be an extremely popular pastime, bringing people together, allowing them to share stories and find out where they come from. It has been made more interesting following recent television programmes and is important for the cultural and economic aspects of our society.”
