Her Exiled Children: A Clann Díbeartha
The Irish of America and the shaping of a new Ireland.
This is the first in a series of documentary films designed to tell the story of the Irish of America and how they changed the history of Ireland. Thomas Francis Meagher sought Irish independence, Marcus Daly sought economic independence, and Sean O Sullivan and Seamus Moriarty fought to save the culture. Through their lives we will tell the story of the Irish of America and the enduring love and commitment of Irish Americans to Ireland and her people.
To view the documentary film teaser please visit Her Exiled Children: A Clann Díbeartha on our Indiegogo campaign page.
There is an Irish proverb 'Ní neart go cur le chéile' which means that there is not strength without unity, that working together we can achieve the goals we set before us. It was the unity between the Irish of America and Ireland that achieved Irish independence; it is working together that we can tell this story. This is why we appeal to you to join us, to give us your support, to help us tell the story of Thomas Francis Meagher and the generations who came before us. We cannot do it without you, so please do help through our Indiegogo campaign.
There are a number of fabulous perks that you can receive for your participation.

If you would like to contribute, but you do not have the financial resources, please feel free to get a hold of us and see what we can do. This project really is by and for the community. We will need help in many ways – you may end up holding a boom microphone or passing out literature about the project – but rest assured, if you want to be part of the project we will do what we can to make sure you can!
One of the ways you can help us most is to let people know. Please send the link to your friends and share the project on social media. Help us make some noise! This is a truly singular project and we really are excited to make it happen.
