'Because She Never Let Them In': Irish Immigration a Century Ago and Today
|Title:||'Because She Never Let Them In': Irish Immigration a Century Ago and Today||Authors:||Ó Gráda, Cormac||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5229||Date:||Dec-2013||Online since:||2014-01-13T13:13:49Z||Abstract:||A century ago, and for most of the twentieth century, Ireland was a land of emigration, not immigration. However, in the space of less than a decade in the 2000s, Ireland was transformed from a homogeneous community, where non-native residents were in a very small minority, to one in which one-sixth of its inhabitants are foreign-born. The paper will compare immigration and attitudes towards immigrants in the very different Irelands of a century ago and of the present.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
