Coollattin - Smiths Falls


The Irish Legacy
In Smiths Falls Ontario

23 June   -   2 July, 2017
A band of twenty one 'pilgrims' from south County Wicklow were honoured and privileged to retrace the steps of the thousands of Coollattin emigres who found a new home in the great land of Canada during the sad and troubled years of mid 19th century Ireland. A truly wonderful experience to meet up once again with those who visited Wicklow August 2016, to 'break bread' and share tales with the descendants of those who left Coollattin some 180 years ago and to join with our Canadian friends in celebrating the 150th anniversary of your great country.  We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to Ingrid Bron and her hard working committee, in our twin town of Smiths Falls, for all of their tireless work in planning our visit.
