Irish people have emigrated around the world for generations.

We have stayed connected with each other via telegrams, letters, the telephone and more recently through email, facebook and skype. We have continued to pass messages, send photographs, well wishes and stayed in contact over continents and across oceans. This sculpture represents the pathways of emigration and communication.
