Come down to Ulster American Folk Park on St Patrick's Day to witness the long goodbye.
In addition to the vibrant music, crafts and festivities for the Ulster American Folk Park St Patrick's Day Celebrations on Saturday 17 March, costumed guides will be re-enacting the emotive send-off which was carried out by countless thousands of people before their voyage from Ireland to America in the 1700s and 1800s.
Known as the 'American' or 'Living Wake', re-live this dramatic re-enactment complete with music, song and dance as the family gather to bid a sad farewell to the departing emigrant.
Normal Folk Park admission pricing applies.
