Academic interest...

Regulars will know that things have been a little quiet on the blog lately; sometimes life just gets in the way. But a really interesting development has popped up into that open space....

I have been contacted recently by Dr. Angela Maye-Banbury and Dr. Rionach Casey from Sheffield Hallam University. Angela, from County Tyrone, and Rionach, from Cork, are members of the Dept. of Architecture and Planning at Sheffield Hallam. They are experienced researchers in the field of sociology and particularly on the importance of housing and home in diverse communities. I am thrilled to say they have invited me to be part of their new project, Irish History Housing Research, looking at the housing histories of Irish communities in Leicester and Sheffield. If you or your family are interested in being part of this study just let me know.

If you'd like to be involved contact us on 0116 276 9186 or pop in to:

The Emerald Centre, Gipsy Lane, Leicester. LE5 OTB

We're now also on Twitter: follow me on  @irishleicester or join The Irish in Leicester group on Facebook.
