About

Offers an account of the influence of the Irish immigrants who arrived in New Zealand from the 19th century onwards. The text describes the Irish men and women who have played a part in New Zealand's politics, in its literature, and in its commercial success.

There are chapters on the Irish gold miners, on the battles between Orange and Green that were fought fiercely in this country, on the Irish influence in the Catholic Church, on the many Irish who became publicans or policemen, and on the discrimination suffered by the Irish immigrants in the days before being Irish was a matter of pride.

Illustrated throughout with b&w images.
