'Migration in Irish History 1607-2007' is the first book to survey the theme of migration in Irish history over four centuries and to examine the dynamic relationship between its immigrants (including return migrants), internal migrats and emigrants. The approach is based on the reconstruction of individual migration stories, and detailed use is made of maps, paintings and drawings to illustrate the migrant experience.

Key terms are home, famoly and diaspora. The book traces how Ireland, since the Flight of the Earls (1607) and the Plantation of Ulster, developed as a site of diaspora for the peoples of Britain and the rest of the world, and how the countries of the rest of the world developed as sites of siaspora for the peoples of Ireland. It prompts the question of how a better understanding of our migration past might help us meet the current challenges of immigration and building a shared future.
