Ireland in Britain – Unveiling 50 Years of Irish Legacy in Great Britain

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum Events is delighted to host this landmark exhibition that explores the personal stories, the struggles and the triumphs that have shaped the Irish community in Great Britain over the last 50 years.

The exhibition, created by the national charity Irish in Britain thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, also features contributions from notable Irish cultural figures, actors Siobhán McSweeney, Adrian Dunbar and Aisling Bea, broadcaster Terry Christian, musician Jah Wobble and Moth Poetry Prize Winner Laurie Bolger, who has composed a bespoke poem.

The stories featured within the exhibition are as inspirational as they are heart-breaking. Volunteers from the Irish community in Britain received special training to help them capture at-risk testimonies from the last half century which speak of the sacrifice, joy, challenges and crucial role the Irish have played in modern Britain.
