This talk presents the fascinating life story of nurse Josephine Heffernan. Presented by Brian White of Bray Cualann Historical Society and in association with Raheny Heritage Society. Josephine was born in the north inner city of Dublin. In 2002 a young boy in France found her bracelet that sparked a world-wide search to find her relatives that took 15 years to solve.

The story of Josephine in Ireland, America, France, Japan, China and The Phillipines is told using her photographs, many taken well over 100 years ago.
