The Other Irish Diaspora
Mass migration is a recurring part of Ireland’s history. From potato blight to economic blight the Irish have frequently needed to leave their homeland. Along with the expected Great Britain, The United States, and Australia, theIrish ended up in places such as Argentina, Mexico, and Chile.
It seems we may be able to add the Artic to that list.
According to a recent study, modern polar bears may be descended from brown bears that roamed in what is now Ireland.
So I guess I should wish a top o’ the mornin’ to the top of the world. There is no word on whether the bears now intend to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
