This analysis looks at the first Irish immigrants who arrived in Cardiff, Wales, nearly 200 years ago and tracks their progression from comparative isolation to integration into local society. The foundation of the Irish settlement and the areas in which the immigrants lived are detailed, along with their movement throughout Cardiff. From the settlement's small beginnings, this account explores the establishment of Catholic parishes as religious and social centers, accounts of initial hostility with the local populace, and the evolution of mutual acceptance. Immigrants who arrived in Cardiff after 1945 are also examined, as are the comparative experiences of the "Cardiff Irish" and the "American Irish" who moved to Albany, Chicago, and New York City.
