Roisin ban

£30.00

Product description

Emigration is a common theme throughout Irish history. As Dermot Bolger recognises in his foreword, it is one that has touched almost every family in Ireland. Until recently thousands found work in Britain's major industrial centres. For a large proportion of people leaving Country Mayo in the West of Ireland, the Yorkshire city of Leeds was their chosen destination.Today the Leeds-Irish population measures 20,000. Although Ireland now enjoys a booming economy, for many Irish in Britain a mixture of family ties, economic dependence and prolonged absence means that while Ireland is still "home", the imagined permanent return is often an impossibility.
