With St Patrick’s day upon us, LoveHistory, producers of the popular Catacomb Tours of Liverpool’s darkest history are proud to present this thought provoking and compelling play, Irish Liverpool. This theatrical production will take place in the concert room at St Georges Hall in commemoration of all those who lost their lives in the Great Famine of the 1840s. This captivating dramatisation will take you on a journey through the passages of Liverpool’s Irish ancestry.
You will hear the tales from an Irish immigrant woman who describes her heart-breaking journey from Ireland, a Liverpool merchant debating the problem of the Irish and an activist who fought for better living conditions for those escaping the famine that destroyed thousands of lives. This thought provoking performance will explore how Irish migration impacted on Liverpool life and culture and how those legacies live on today.
All the stories are historically accurate and have been researched by LoveHistory and Liverpool University History department.
Make your St Patrick’s day extra special and join us through a journey that explores and celebrates the Liverpool/Irish relations.
