Ireland abroad: politics and professions in the nineteenth century

Oonagh Walsh (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology/Edited Book


Irish migration has attracted considerable attention in recent years, with many studies examining the impact – physical, psychological and cultural – on emigrants' lives. The history of the Irish diaspora, however, requires an evaluation of the fuller experience, in particular the effects of migration on the host culture. This volume addresses the subject from the perspective of the contribution made by Irish migrants in Britain, Australia, Canada, France, China and the Orient. This essay collection, which brings together scholars from the disciplines of historical geography as well as literature and history, is a welcome addition to the growing subject of Irish Diaspora Studies.
