The Success of the Irish in the UK

Over a period of four months, I have travelled across the UK searching for interesting people with Irish roots who have been successful in the UK.

Irish photography is commonly shown through poverty, riots and violence. I wanted to publicise their hard working ethic, which a lot of them rightly deserve.

I have interviewed each of my subjects about their background and decision to move to the UK, as well as their key to success and happiness.

Each of my subjects gave me a heart-felt interview, which will hopefully be reflect on the younger Irish generation living not just in the uK, but around the world.

Having Irish parents myself, this is a personal journey for me which I hope you will enjoy.
