For hundreds of years the Irish Island of Great Blasket was home to a community of people who lived without gas, electricity or running water. In 1953 life there became too hard and the island was evacuated. An extraordinary migration took place, the island community relocating almost wholesale to an obscure suburb of an ordinary town in Massachusetts, USA. One family provides the human focus and emotional core to this wider story of emigration. Ceit Kearney stayed in Ireland when her two brothers made the epic journey to America. In their last years they share stories of lives geographically and culturally divided by the Atlantic.
