    Emigrant perceptions featured on radio programme

    By Noreen Bowden | March 27, 2007

    Radio presenter Ryan Tubridy recently focused on emigrants’ perceptions of Ireland in his daily morning radio show. Reflecting Ireland’s emerging status as an immigrant nation, Tubridy referred to the Irish emigrant as “that most rare of creatures”.

    He spoke to Paris-based journalist Greg Delaney, London writer Joe Ambrose, and New York journalist Niall Stanage. The men, all successful media professionals, shared the perception that Ireland’s smallness had led them to choose to emigrate. They commented on such issues as the Irish communities around them, the drive toward multiculturalism in Ireland and the perceptions of Ireland held by people in their host countries.

    The discussion prompted a number of comments from listeners.

    Listen to the programme.
