Building Bridges: Back to Ireland

First Aired Thursday, September 27, 2012

In 1997, 12 young men and women from Ireland and Northern Ireland came to western Montana to work on Habitat for Humanity projects while learning how to deal with their cultural, political and religious differences. In 2010, MontanaPBS traveled to Ireland to tell the stories of five of the original 12 workers and how their lives have changed since their great adventure in Montana.
