Brand New Video: The Exile

The festive season is now upon us. At this time of year we come together with loved ones, sometimes fighting time and distance to spend the season with them.

Our latest video draws inspiration from what The Wild Geese left behind. Although these Men of Action stood strong in 1691 and achieved some remarkable things in their adopted communities, many left behind families. The took the name ‘The Wild Geese’ in the hope and belief that they would one day return. Their hearts remained focused on Ireland.

Wherever you are in the world, if you are of Irish descent you are part of this story and entitled to call yourself Wild Geese.

Brand New Video: ‘The Beginning’

We’re very excited to share our new video with you.

The Beginning’ 

Ireland was torn by injustice and natural disaster.

The soldiers and refugees who were forced to set sail
on ships for other lands became know as
The Wild Geese.

Through oppression and famine they created a beautiful dream
Freedom for Everyone.

 

BRAND NEW VIDEO: THREE CENTURIES OF MILITARY HISTORY – THE WILD GEESE IN FRANCE

For hundreds of years, Irish soldiers have sought their destiny abroad. Wherever they travelled, whichever side of the battlefield they have stood, the tales of their exploits have never been forgotten.

Our new video explores the arrival of The Wild Geese in France and the strong Irish-Franco relationship they started. A relationship that still thrives today.

The Wild Geese were remembered in an exhibition at the Musee de l’Armee in Paris, which proves that their story still resonates with people throughout the world today.
