Happy 4th July!

Today marks the birth of the US and a celebration of freedom. Over a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War, thirteen colonies of the British Empire joined together to declare themselves independent territories. This was recorded in The Declaration of Independence (1776), signed by representatives from these territories and became the foundation of the 'American Dream'. 

Celebrated across the US, The Fourth of July is an integral part of story of The Wild Geese. Since leaving Ireland in 1691, The Wild Geese touched every corner of the world. 

Today is a monumental realisation of what The Wild Geese - throughout the centuries - fought for: 

Through oppression and famine they created a beautiful dream - Freedom For Everyone
