Welcome to Irish Survivors in Britain
There has always been a tremendous pull for the Irish people toward England. Mostly for economic reasons, but also in the case of victims of abuse by the institutions in Ireland because they feel disconnected, and are happy to embrace the anonymity of a fresh start in a new place.
It is very important to stay connected to our roots, and for many in places like England that connection is a distant memory, except for the reach out programs in some of the larger cities by organisations like the Irish Centres.
Life is short, and it is important to be kind. If you have an opportunity to help, we humbly urge you to do so.
