From There to Here

Today has been a great day. Today we have completed and uploaded our film, "From There to Here". This film will introduce you to many of the Irish you will have met on the blog and more besides. It charts their journey from over there to over here, telling why the Irish came to Leicester in the first place, where they lived and how they found work, love and a future in the City of Leicester.

A huge thanks to Dan Ashman for the filming and editing, to Colin Hyde for the use of equipment, film and interview tips and of course, the Emerald Centre for the unending support for this piece of work.
