Hear tales of politics, music, sport, insurrection and laughter on this guided walk around Manchester city centre.
The Manchester Irish have been here for generations. They came for work, stayed, settled and helped to build this city. The Manchester Irish include George Best, Steve Coogan and Morissey. There’s Mary Burns who showed Herr Engels a thing or two in Spinningfields and Eva Gore-Booth who helped the poor mill-workers to unionise. The Manchester Martyrs died horribly and unjustly in this city and both the Fenians and the IRA have made their marks here.
Your guide is one of thousands of Manchester Irish. Come with Anne and she’ll point out some places important to a community that has made this city its home.
The walk is lead by Anne Beswick from manchester Guided Tours.
