More Irish Manchester

By Alan Keegan & Danny Claffey

More Irish Manchester, is another celebration of memories of Irish people and their descendants in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Manchester. The majority of the photographs in the book were taken in the 1980s when there was a real resurgence of the Irish community in the city, from the opening of the Irish World Heritage Centre to the forming of many new county associations, GAA clubs, Irish dancing schools and the dynamic emergence of young second and third-generation Irish traditional musicians, many of whom are now internationally famous in their own right.

Many of the personalities featured in the book have sadly passed away, but all of them leave a happy, lasting memory and the knowledge that they successfully helped to gel together the Irish community of Manchester in a very positive, engaging and often entertaining way.
