    Researcher seeks Irish in Continental Europe

    By Noreen Bowden | July 29, 2009

    A researcher based in France has teamed up with to conduct a survey of Irish people living in Continental Europe. The site says:

    Gráinne O’Keeffe-Vigneron is a lecturer at the Université Rennes 2, Brittany, France. Originally from Co. Tipperary, Ireland, she has been based in France for over 10 years and completed a PhD on the Irish in England in 2005. Her research interests are principally focused on Irish people as an immigrant minority.
    “Being part of the “Irish in Europe? myself, I have come to realise that very little is known about Irish people based in continental Europe. I hope to shed some light on those of us who have been largely ignored in research on the Irish diaspora”.

    The survey is looking at the experience both of Irish people living in Continental Europe now and those who have returned.
