Things at the School of Canadian Irish Studies are getting crazy these days (in a fun way), as we await the climax of Montreal’s Irish “Green Season”. There have been balls, luncheons, poetry readings, film screenings… and now we’re all getting ready for Sunday’s 190th St Patrick’s Day Parade down Rue Ste-Catherine.
I got into the spirit as well — in both official languages (mostly). Click here to read my op-ed piece in The Montreal Gazette this morning about the new faces of the Irish Diaspora. Click here to read Prof. Michael Kenneally’s op-ed on the changing landscape of Irish Montreal. And click here to hear me discuss the diaspora since 2008 en français on Radio-Canada Toronto’s “Y a pas deux matins pareils”.
See you on the other side of the shamrock!
