Ireland - Tracing Ancestry In The Northwest

Season 2, Episode 9 of 13

In Ireland's northwest region, The family discovers their roots and hunts for the ancient castle of their ancestor, infamous Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen. After searching the wilds of the Connemara where they encounter a true Irish traffic jam - sheep in the road - our host family finds refuge at a farmhouse Bed and Breakfast, ironically enough owned by the O'Malley family. In their ancestry search, the family discovers the true meaning of heritage as they learn about the potato famine, sit in on a traditional music session and finally reach Clare Island and the home of Grace O'Malley.
