The Vietnam War caused great upheaval in America in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Bill Warren wished to avoid the draft into the defence forces, so he decided to leave with his wife Patricia and moved to Ireland. Immigration was not on Sharon Lennon’s mind when she met her husband Frank, but she left the US to join him in Belfast. (First Broadcast 1991)
