About this title

Synopsis:

Irish tells the story of how Glasgow would not have become the powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution, had it not been for the labors and skills of the tens of thousands of Irish who flooded in during and following the Great Famine. Nor would there have been the legendary Rangers and Celtic had it not been for the arrival of those hard-pressed immigrants, and the real story of the formation of the two clubs is just one of the many episodes uncovered here. The harrowing experiences and suffering of so many throughout Ireland during the Great Famine is brought home, as are the privations faced and sacrifices made by those fleeing impoverished Ireland on board overcrowded, tiny vessels.

About the Author:

John Burrowes is the author of several books including Benny, the biography of Scotland,s first World Champion boxer Benny Lynch, Great Glasgow Stories, Glasgow: Tales of the City, and the Jamesie,s People trilogy, which detailed life in the Gorbals from the 30s to the 70s.
