The Irish have always been proud of their contribution to Manchester. Alan Keegan's "More Irish Manchester" follows the huge success of his first book. Working here with Danny Claffey, photographer on the "Irish Post", Alan has combined yet more rare and unpublished photographs with his well-researched captions to create a fascinating picture of the Irish community in the city: suburbs, people, shops, clubs, buildings, events and entertainment of the past. Packed with memories, anecdotes and people, this is part two of the ultimate guide to Manchester's strong links with the Emerald Isle.
