Epilogue: Rethinking the Irish Diaspora

Johanne Devlin Trew, Michael Pierse

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The diaspora has granted Ireland access to transnational politics and markets on a scale unparalleled by other, similarly sized EU nations. But this relationship is fraught with contradictions. New narratives of Irish migrant experience, including those of immigrants to Ireland, are unfolding and demand urgent attention. For example, the recent story of emigrant return has highlighted divisions in the diaspora.
