Current research

Irish in New Zealand Survey

The Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies is proud to have been selected by the Irish Embassy in New Zealand to lead a research project on the Irish in New Zealand.

The lead investigator is Professor Sonja Tiernan, Eamon Cleary Chair of Irish Studies and co-director of the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Otago. The project is fully funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Ireland.

This is the first national project which aims to record the number of Irish born, people of Irish heritage and with an affinity for Ireland living in New Zealand. We are also engaging with Irish community groups in New Zealand.

This is an exciting project and we would be delighted if you would take the time to learn more about the project and engage with our surveys.
