Irish Emigrations to Spain

Author and amateur historian Stephen Estopinal will address the February 7, 2015 meeting of the Canary Islanders Heritage Society of Louisiana. The subject of his talk will be the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and the subsequent Jacobite risings (1688-1745) which resulted in the mass migration of Irish Catholics to France and Spain.

The meeting will begin at 11 am at the Louisiana State Archives Building, 3851 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. All meetings are open to the public.

39th Annual Los Islenos Fiesta - 1345-1357 Bayou Road, St. Bernard, LA

We will not have our monthly meeting since it falls on the same day as the annual fiesta in St. Bernard. We strongly encourage all members and friends to attend and support our fellow Islenos! It's a great celebration and a chance to experience a taste of the rich culture and heritage of our ancestors.
