Is “home” a house, a village, a county or a country? Or is it a feeling rather than a physical place? For some emigrants, Ireland will always be the place they call home, while for others, home is where they now live, where they have made a new life for themselves.

The theme of the St Patrick’s Festival in Ireland this year is Home, and Irish Times Abroad would like to hear from Irish people living overseas about where home is and what the word means to them.
