Redwoods for Ireland’s Diaspora and their families

Ireland’s Diaspora and the Giants Grove

A living, enduring and inspiring tribute to Ireland’s diaspora across the planet at the Giants Grove, Birr Castle Estate.

1. To signify the great place that those sons and daughters of Ireland and their descendants have in our hearts.

2. This tribute to be created through sponsorship of space in the redwood forest grove in the names of Irish people abroad and/or their relatives living in Ireland.

3. Offer the opportunity to honour and remember family and friends who have gone before us, but who will live on in these Giant Redwood trees.

4. Create a tangible and lasting link between diaspora lives across the globe with redwood trees and family roots in Ireland.

Who are your diaspora family? Where in the world are they?

Join the growing number of giant redwood sponsors putting down redwood roots in Birr Castle to honour and remember Irelands Diaspora, your family members wherever they may be. Give them this unique contact with Irish soil and Irish air for the next one thousand and more years, and a place to visit their own tree when they come to Ireland.

Quote from a tree sponsor

I immediately saw this as a way to create an enduring “umbilical link” for all their lifetimes which would ‘draw’ them back each year as proud Irish!
