Policing Hong King, an Irish history: Irishmen in the Hong Kong Police Force 1864-1950

with Patricia O’Sullivan

When her 90 year old aunt instructed her to ‘go on that googly thing and find out about Uncle Murt’ Patricia O’Sullivan uncovered almost a hundred year connection between Newmarket, Co. Cork and the Hong Kong Police Force,
with a score of Irish men building careers there. Patricia will share some of their police cases, give a glimpse into their lives in Colonial Hong Kong and explain the research methods for this unique story.
