StarVISIT BY MIKE FEERICK

BBFHS members were fortunate to meet and hear Mike Feerick in December. Mike is the founder of 'Ireland Reaching Out' website – a 'reverse genealogy' concept where the Irish diaspora from anywhere in the world can 'get in touch' with volunteers in the county or local parish their family originally came from.
Mike was in Australia for an Education conference & took the opportunity to spread the word about 'Ireland Reaching out' as well.
