This introductory chapter begins by briefly describing the Irish population in Birmingham, which dates back to the nineteenth century, when the town became a hub for Irish communities in other parts of the English midlands, such as Wolverhampton and Coventry. It then reviews previous studies of the Irish in Birmingham. This is followed by a discussion of the history of Irish migration to Birmingham.
