Hello, I am Aoife Budd, Vice Consul at the Irish Consulate in Boston.
It is my pleasure to welcome the Great Famine Voices Roadshow to the Irish Cultural Centre
of New England here in Canton, Massachusetts. It is a pleasure to hear about the Great
Famine and the wonderful work of the Roadshow in spreading the stories about that
harrowing period of Irish history.
We are delighted to be here at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton who are great friends of the
Consulate, great supporters to the Irish community and in bringing culture and Irish heritage
to the people of Massachusetts and New England.
We are very proud to support their work through the Irish Government Emigrant Support
So I hope you all enjoy the Roadshow on its many stops around North America. Thank you.
