'Diversity Window' documenting Irish immigration to be unveiled in Glasgow

A STRIKING stained glass window which tells the story of Irish emigration to the Govanhill area of Glasgow will be unveiled next week.

The window is one of five that have been created by community groups in the town, for Govanhill Library’s Diversity Windows Project.

Development of the Irish window has been led by the Irish Heritage Foundation group with help from members of the Glasgow Irish community.

The window was first seen by Diaspora Minister Jimmy Deenihan on his recent visit to the city.

“The Irish window depicts the journey of Irish people to and their settlement in Govanhill and their lives today,” IHF Development Manager Isabelle Gray told The Irish post this week.

Each of the five windows created for the project, which was launched in October 2014, will be officially unveiled at Govanhill Library on Tuesday, June 2.
