Did a representative from the Irish Labour Party visit a centre near you Tom? Kathleen Lynch, TD for Cork North Central spent the day with Coventry Cork Association exiles in my neck of the woods before Christmas.
Its shocking that up to now some of our most vulnerable exiles have been forgotten about by the Irish state. The reason for this is that the plight of exiles living abroad hasn’t really been afforded with a particularly high profile back home.
I’m glad to see that Irish Labour representatives are starting to reverse the trend. All of us could all do with a greater understanding when it comes to the established Irish community in Britain.
The same delegation came down to the London Irish Centre before Christmas. I did an interview with Emmet Stagg there for the Irish World, which is archived here: http://www.tomgriffin.info/ibfolder/ib241204a.htm
The whole issue seems to have picked up since RTE Primetime did a documentary on emigrants just before Christmas 2003.
