Theme 7: Irish Diaspora

James McVeigh begins this second section of his recording by reflecting on the Troubles in Northern Ireland, noting that at one time his own premises in Toronto became a safe haven for republicans. He speaks about promoting Irish music in the bar, and mentions Gerry Adams who fundraised for the republican cause in Toronto and would regularly visit the bar.
