Near the eastern end of the Lachine Canal in Montreal, GRIFFINTOWN is where many Irish settled when they came in droves during the 19th century. Despite difficult living conditions, it became a community of strong people determined to carve out a life for themselves. In the 1940s, Griffintown's population started to dwindle as people moved up to better neighbourhoods, and by 1970 urban expansion had bulldozed whatever remained. In this documentary you will learn of the strong attachment and deep affection people have for the area. You will hear not only about the ghost of Mary Gallagher but about the ghost of a neighbourhood that is now only a memory.
