New To The Parish
New to the Parish is a selection of 14 stories from The Irish Times series of the same name by journalist Sorcha Pollak. Sorcha's own grandfather was a Czech Jewish political refugee who arrived in Ireland in 1948, and from this perspective she offers a deep understanding of what makes a person leave their native land to start a new life abroad. Ireland has changed and evolved over recent decades with the arrival of people from all over the world, hoping for a better life on our fair isle.
These are the stories of people who have come to Ireland for work, education, retirement, love and in some cases, out of necessity, forced from their homes by death and destruction. New to the Parish is an important reminder that every migrant is a human being, and that every one of us has a story to tell.
