Lost Children of the Carricks

For generations, the Kavanagh family have preserved and sometimes even defended the memory of the Irish shipwreck survivors in Gaspé .

Georges never tired being a witness to history and to Ireland's integration of Irish-speaking Sligo emigrants into french-speaking Canada.
