Exploring Our Irish Roots
The Heritage Centre in Cayuga is hosting an event:
This event features a special afternoon tea with homemade scones and other sweet treats, followed by a presentation on all things Irish including a look at Irish settlement, customs and traditions. The Irish began to immigrate to Canada in 1825, and by 1867 they comprised 24 per cent of Canada’s population. Many Irish citizens who settled in this area arrived to work on the Grand River Canal.
Pre-registration is required for all programs. Register online or in person at the Haldimand County Administration Building, 53 Thorburn Street South, Cayuga.
