Visitors in their own country Holidays at home made some emigrants want to move back. Others were glad to leave again. CIARA KENNY talks to emigrants who returned this summer.
Have your say: what were your impressions of Ireland on your last visit? Have you been home to visit Ireland this summer? If so, what did you get up to, and what were your impressions? Share your experiences and thoughts.
