Genealogy Club: Wild Ireland
Genealogy Club: Wild Ireland Online
Wild Ireland is a presentation that is part travelogue and part myth. It tells the stories of several “off the road” historic and mythological sites that I have visited in Ireland. These stories are examples of stories that could be interesting additions to any family history. This program uses animation, video and music and is designed to be entertaining as well as informative. The program handout includes a list of sources that researchers can use to enhance their knowledge of family stories.
Tom Toohey is a modern day Irish storyteller who has traveled to Ireland 19 times and collected hundreds of stories. He comes to this tradition naturally as his parents were great storytellers. In the last few years Tom has recorded his family stories in a five volume book called Images of Other Lives. For 40 years Tom was a teacher. He taught all levels from elementary school through graduate school as a public school teacher,
adjunct professor and educational consultant. Tom has a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and a M.M. from the University of Hartford.
