A Complicated History: Ireland and the Caribbean

September 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Servants and enslavers; merchants and governors; educators and journalists – the history of the Irish in the Caribbean is complex and multifaceted. This talk will survey Irish migration to the region from the 17th century, telling the stories of a diverse range of people who set out to make new lives for themselves in places like Jamaica, Barbados, and Cuba.

To what extent have Irish people shaped Caribbean societies and economies? And how have Irish-Caribbean relations evolved in the last century?

This talk will be presented by Dr Catherine Healy, curator of a new exhibition on Irish-Caribbean connections at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.
