Grosse Île participating at the Gathering in Ireland
The Gathering is a year-long celebration of all things Irish on the Emerald Isle, with participants coming from all over the world for special festivals and concerts. Breakaway’s Rachelle Solomon met with Jo-Anick Proulx, Site Manager for Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site, before he left for Ireland. He talked about representing Parks Canada and the heritage site at events in Strokestown.
