Earlier this year, Chris Ruane MP began the Irish Builders of Modern Britain Project to help communicate the value Irish workers have brought to Britain. By considering Irish Navvies and Nurses, the project will recognise and celebrate Ireland’s contribution to Britain without “neglecting the sacrifices and isolation experienced by many”. The Project held its first round table discussion in London and we are delighted to follow that up with a discussion that is a part of the Liverpool Irish Festival.
You are invited to share your own stories and experiences and those of your family:
