The Emerald Centre, Leicester

The Emerald Centre is said, by some, to be the local hub of the Irish social scene in Leicester. The centre is used by many community groups ranging from the Naomh Padraig Gaelic football to the Irish Senior Citizens. Each and everyone of these groups are what have made the Emerald Centre the positive community beacon it is today.

This video, 'From Here to There', was recorded by Lynda Callaghan and Dan Ashman as part of 'Migration Stories' and the 'Irish in Leicester' project at the Emerald Centre, Leicester, which has been investigating the links and connections that helped build the strong Irish community that now exists in Leicester.
