In Summer 2013 we started what has come to be known fondly as the 'Tea n Chat Sessions'. Volunteers have come together, one-to-one with members of the community over many evenings and many bottomless cups of tea in other to share and record their story of journey to London.
These recorded conversations are among those shared on this site. Others have remained anonymous within our project archives. Altogether they continue to build a picture of the experience of journey shared within the community. As a method of story collection, it is has proved a great way to foster understanding across generations. Those who participated often delved into poignant and hilarious memories of what brought them to leave Ireland and what life has been like as a migrant in London.
Tea 'n' Chat Sessions continue today. If you would like to share your story in this way, please do get in touch.
