Sa bhliain 1937 chuir an Rialtas, faoi stiúir an Choimisiún Talmhaíochta, scéim athlonaithe i bhfeidhm chun daoine a thabhairt ó cheantair Ghaeltachta in iarthar na hEireann go Baile Ghib i gContae na Mí. Féachann an clár faisnéise  seo ar na fathanna gur bhog na clanna úd, fiúntas na scéime agus, chomh maith le sin, déanann agallamh le cuid den dream a d’aistrigh.

In 1937 a number of families from Gaeltachts on the west coast of Ireland moved to Gibbstown in Co. Meath to live on holdings acquired by the Land Commission as part of a government resettlement scheme. This documentary film looks at the reasons why families chose to move, investigates the merits of the scheme, and catches up with some of the remaining migrants.
