Bere Island. Pic: Bere Island Heritage Centre

THERE is still time to submit your stories and photos for the Bere Island emigration exhibition which will open at the Bere Island Heritage Centre in June.

Ideally any stories submitted should be up to 800 words in length.

The deadline for all submissions is April 30th.

The Bere Island diaspora can be found in the four corners of the world.

By staging this exhibition the centre aims to look at the factors which made past generations take the momentous decision to leave their island home, to show how they settled into their new homes, and how to this day their descendants still maintain a strong allegiance to their island roots.
