Irish Manchester Revisited

By Alan Keegan & Danny Claffey

The Irish have always been proud of their contribution to Manchester.

Alan Keegan and Danny Claffey’s Irish Manchester Revisited combines many previously unpublished photographs with well-researched captions to create a fascinating picture of the Irish community in the city. Among the themes featured are suburbs, characters, shops, clubs, buildings, events and entertainment of the past.

With two chapters being contributed by notable locals Joe Casserley (who has been involved with local radio for a number of years) and Rose Morris of the Irish World Heritage Centre, this book is packed with memories, anecdotes and people, and is the ultimate guide to Manchester’s strong links with the Emerald Isle.
