This recording with Michael Keville reveals the many trials and tribulations of an Irishman working as a member of the Metropolitan Police in London, at a time when England was a popular destination for Irish emigrants. Michael’s meetings with Fr. Eamon Casey, who was the driving force behind many Irish centres are described. We hear how Michael had to cope with the effects of the Northern Irish troubles in Britain, at a turbulent and difficult time for the Irish who lived there.
