About Ireland XO
Are you of Irish Heritage? Would you like to find out more about where your ancestors came from and even connect with people still living in that place today?
Having Irish ancestry means that you share a unique heritage with over 70 million people worldwide. It is about a shared cultural identity that is celebrated for its art, music, storytelling and above all for the warmth of its people.
This genuine desire to connect is at the heart of Ireland Reaching Out. Our mission is to help people of Irish descent all over the world discover their place of origin and become a part of its global community. You may be surprised to learn that people still living in your ancestors' birthplace are also curious to hear the stories, and meet the descendants, of the people that left their community so many years ago.
All over the island of Ireland, people are looking to reconnect with descendants of Irish emigrants who are living all over the world. Time and geography may have separated us, but we all share a common heritage - a bond that cannot be broken and one that can now be rekindled and kept alive through modern technology.
Ireland Reaching Out is a FREE service. Our volunteers would be delighted to help you find out more about your Irish heritage and connect you with the Ireland of today. So why not awaken your Irish spirit - either by posting a message on the Community message board or by connecting with your Irish place of origin directly on their parish page on this website.
