    Éan 2005 conference report describes proceedings

    By admin | November 14, 2006

    While Éan won’t be holding a conference this year, the proceedings of last year’s conference, themed “Toward a Positive Emigration Experience”, are available online. Speakers at last year’s event included representatives of the Federation of Irish Societies in Britain and the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers in the US, as well as people working with emigrant Travellers, prisoners, drug users and sexual abuse survivors. Writer Dermot Bolger gave the keynote speech and President Mary McAleese gave the concluding address.

    Among the topics discussed were assisted holidays, undocumented Irish immigrants in the US, recent emigration to the UK, and research on return migrants. The event’s networking and information exchange opportunities were meant to serve as an effective way for member organisations to improve the services they give to their clients.

    Catherine Dunne, author of “An Unconsidered People: The Irish in London”, compiled the report.
