An Irishman Abroad

I have already blogged about An Irishman Abroad on “Letters to Australia”, which is where I communicate with my son, who is living in Brisbane.

For anyone interested in the Irish diaspora and the experience of rural poverty it should be worth a read. You can choose between my academic article published in the AB Yearbook, and/or a slideshow with my stepfather actually speaking.

Let me know what you think. I am planning to follow it with an analysis of my birth parents’ childhood narratives – poverty in wartime and post-war England, in one case rural, the other urban. Eventually I would like to draw comparisons between them.
