The programme is based on a simple idea; reverse genealogy. Instead of waiting for people of Irish descent to trace their roots, Ireland XO volunteers worldwide are networking with people of Irish descent in their local areas, helping to build bridges between the present and the past by connecting people with the home parishes of their ancestors.
Volunteering with Ireland Reaching Out means that you make a difference as every one of our volunteers brings something special to the Programme. Here you can find out more about the various volunteer roles available. We have a role for everyone, so please get in contact if you would like to help.
