Exhibit: The Irish in Latin America

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 at 7:00pm
Irish Cultural and Heritage Center
2133 W Wisconsin Ave
Milwaukee, WI 53233

This exhibition describes the complex, varied and shared history of Ireland and different countries in Latin America, connected through migrations over the centuries. The largest flow of migrants to leave Ireland for Latin America took place in the nineteenth century, with smaller numbers arriving through the United States. The sons and daughters of these immigrants made substantial and lasting contributions to the economic, political, social and cultural life of Latin America.

Join us for the official opening at 7:00pm on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W Wisconsin Ave!

Opening remarks by the Hon. Justin Dolan, Irish Vice Consul General
Presentation by Dr. Aims McGuinness, Associate Professor, Department of History, UWM
