Who are the Irish missionaries and what has been their motivation to serve in other areas of the world? Is it for glory, adventure, and/or escape? And what were their achievements?
Author Joe Humphreys - a journalist for The Irish Times - visited missionaries' places of service across the globe, seeking to find what motivated them in the past, and what continues to motivate the modern missionary.
He also highlights the importance of their work in trying to combat such religious extremisms as HIV/AIDS.
