Overview Overview

This module examines the lives of the Irish in twentieth-century Britain, comparing the life opportunities offered in both countries and hence the reasons why so many thousands of young people left. Work experiences for men and women are analysed, including during the Second World War when Irish people worked in the British home front industries as well as the armed forces, a history that calls into question the idea of Irish neutrality. Irish experiences of discrimination are also examined, particularly in the context of ongoing IRA campaigns in Britain. More positive narratives of career success are also interrogated, in particular the differing career paths of Irish men and women in Britain.
