Overview of A Distant Shore

A Distant Shore tells the story of Irish migration to New Zealand in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In a series of essays written by leading scholars in the field, it offers a glimpse into the lives and experiences of these newcomers as they left post-Famine Ireland and made their way to a destination 'half the world from home'. It uses many sources, including letters from migrants to their families in Ireland, and also looks at the history of Irish organisations in New Zealand, both Catholic and Protestant.
