Project Description

From the dead heat of East Africa to the tropics of the Caribbean, from the foothills of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains to New Zealand’s scenic coastline – Emigration Nation follows the Irish diaspora to all corners of the globe, and celebrates their successes abroad.

In this six-part series aired on UTV, we showcase the stories of some of Ireland’s most interesting emigrants. Featured is a northerner who finds himself in the enviable position of being the world’s youngest international football manager, the brains behind the US Olympic boxing team and a Barbados IVF clinic with a Corkonian founder.
