Great source - can you find more on the Hugenots in Ireland? Maybe try the DIB and search by religion.
Researcher 48's comment, September 27, 2013 4:53 PM
Really helpful idea. Thank you. Totally lost myself in the various sites looking for more information on the Huguenots in Ireland. Huge part of Irish history. The story of how people came to us, some fleeing persecution, some just looking for better opportunities, is incredibly relevant to the experience of the emigrating Irish, and yet is rarely discussed.

The Irish diaspora have achieved transnational success in the past during times of mass emigration. The same situation now faces us today, this memorandum from 80 years ago suggests the importance of a "moral union" between original country of emigration, and country of arrival. The connection between Ireland and, as mentioned above, America and Australia, have been invaluable assets before and still provide opportunity for the diasporic Irish.

I researched and wrote this article back in 2000. I would do this differently now. I would add more flavour into Christy Brown's life, as there is probbaly more research that has been revealed about him, since 2000. As the Dictionary of Irish Biography (DIB) is also an online resource, it can be viewed as an 'organic' document - and one that can be continuously updated as new insights and data is revealed about a particular person. This data must be verified though by the DIB's Managing Editor, etc, before it is published onlines, as an update. - Thanks Carmel

It is well known that that many Irish went to the US during the famine and after. However, less well known is that many Irish also emigrated to Europe.

Particulary during the cold war the Irish were regarded as hesitant Europeans - that only changed later, when European Integration was more facilitated, and Irish foreign policy become more conversative and cautious.

Researcher 30's insight:

Thomas Francis Meagher - the guy who designed the Irish flag, had to flee Ireland, ended up in Montana, US as it's first governor. 

 

Insight/angle - those who are such a touchstone of Irish history (by designing the tricolour) had such impact here, who were forced to flee Ireland, ended up having just as big if not bigger impact on the places they ended up in after leaving Ireland. Perhaps something about how they maintained their Irish identity abroad, the link with home, or were they gone forever and didn't look back?
