The site is an interactive documentary that allows the user to follow several Irish emigrants at different points in history (1824, 1894, 1939, and 1975). As the user clicks on different boxes and prompts, the site comes alive with facts, photos, charts, and sounds. As a baby boomer myself, I found the 1975 journey a particularly entertaining one that gave me much insight into the emigration journey of persons about my own age.
