Beyond Orange and Green: Toronto’s Irish, 1870-1914

For those with Toronto Irish interests a podcast, the first of the year available through activehistory.ca is a recording of a talk in the 2013 History Matters lecture series given on January 31st.
Migration historian William Jenkins of York University "examines immigration patterns and political allegiances of Toronto’s Irish between 1870 and World War I, and how struggles at home and abroad had an impact on the Catholic and Protestant Irish communities in the city."
Thanks to the Toronto Public Library for sponsoring this series held at various of their branches - something for other public libraries to emulate.
 
Thanks to Dave for the corrected web address
