The coming of the Irish to Canada is popular history at its best.

Based on the story of mass migration that brought a million Irish men and women to Canada in the first half of the 19th century.  After the horrors of the voyage many arrived penniless, sometimes even naked, to “make good” in the New World. And make good they did, despite the trials of cholera, intolerance, and other problems facing settlers in a harsh new land.
