New to the Parish: Stories of Love, War and Adventure from Ireland’s Immigrants chronicles fourteen personal stories of people who have come to Ireland for work, education, retirement, love and in some cases, out of necessity, forced from their homes by death and destruction, given context by succinct analysis of how world events over the past decade have played a role in the migration crisis.

Author Sorcha Pollak is an Irish journalist based in Dublin working for The Irish Times with a specific focus on migration and immigrant communities in Ireland.
