For many Irish people, it’s becoming tougher than ever to find a stable job and an affordable home. This programme looks at the people who have decided to look to London (which, after all, isn’t so far away that they can’t return home) as a place to build a new life.
Presenter George Lee interviews a number of Irish individuals about living and working in London. Traditionally, the Irish in London worked in construction and hospitality, but now they are enjoying success at high levels of finance, tech and media. At the same time, the results of the recent Brexit vote are still being felt, and Irish people are now having to question their position in the UK.
