“Being Irish in Britain,” a discussion

On Saturday, April 5, 2014 the London Irish Centre held a one-day conference to discuss what it means today to be Irish in Britain. Like many, I followed along from afar — in transit between Washington, DC and New York at the time.

Many threads of conversation (in person and online) touched on the experiences of emigration and immigration, issues of identity, community supports, political interests, and the differences between past and present.

Especially given the relevance of these topics to my book, I used Storify to preserve and organize the day’s discussions: “Being Irish in Britain.” Hope it’s helpful.
