This book presents an acute awareness of the contradictions and complexities of the lived history of Irish migrants, concentrating on the Irish in Wales. It also addresses the four principal themes: migration, settlement, conflict, and integration. The studies presented in the book raise the unresolved question of whether successful integration without subsequent top-up migration inevitably results in the fading of ethnicity. In addition, the book reflects the current state of research and marks an important stage in the development of the study of the Irish in Wales. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in the book is given.

Keywords:   Irish migrants, Wales, migration, settlement, conflict, integration, ethnicity
