Emma Prunty hasn't voted in Ireland in 23 years. Now she's back living here she can't wait to have her say. David Burns and Joey Kavanagh, who were involved in #Hometovote for the marriage equality referendum, ask: Why has the Government done nothing to facilitate emigrant voting? 

Marc Scully starts a new column for IT Abroad this week with a focus on the surge in passport applications from Britain after Brexit; Crosscare Migrant Project answers a reader question about child benefit on returning to Ireland; Lisa Tierney-Keogh writes a gorgeous tribute to her grand-aunt, who she has said goodbye to in California for the last time; and Marie-Claire Digby pays a visit to the Irish Family History Centre, where Tom Cruise, Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau have traced their roots, and you can too.

Thanks to all the journalists who submitted story ideas for our diaspora journalism initiative. We will be in touch next week.

You'll find many more stories below and on irishtimes.com/abroad.

Thanks for reading.
