Inspired by a persisting lack of representation of the mixed race Irish experience, Lorraine Maher launched the project to celebrate a more diverse representation of Irish identity and to question the concept of ‘Irishness’ and what that means for Irish communities today. 

We are thrilled to collaborate with CualaNYC in launching this amazing exhibition in the United States.
