Abstract [en]

In this chapter, two sisters are interviewed and recount details of their early lives as women religious and their subsequent experiences of migrating to London in the 1960s. The pseudonymous interviewees provide fascinating details of what it was like to live in that place during that period and to occupy an identity that was often problematic and subject to hostile attitudes as the Irish conflict extended to the British capital. As both sisters now reside once more in Ireland, their journey and return express an important aspect of Irish life as it once was and will perhaps never be again. © Peter Lang AG, International Academic Publishers, Bern 2015.
