Manchester’s Irish Story is a new publication which tells the fascinating story of the Irish in Manchester over the last two centuries: from the early days in Little Ireland and Irish Town, where they struggled against appalling hardships, to today’s vibrant community.


Dramatic political events were played out in the city with the executions of the Manchester Martyrs, the freeing of political prisoners, including Eamon de Valera, and the shooting of young Sean Morgan.

Presented in 48 full colour A4 pages, and featuring original research, Manchester’s Irish Story also gives voice to ordinary members of the Irish community who have made this city their home.

Manchester’s Irish Story is currently available at the special promotional price of £5 (plus postage).
