A LUCKY LANDING : THE STORY OF THE IRISH IN NEW ZEALAND

by Anna Rogers


"A Lucky Landing" tells of the colourful Irish men and women who have pleaded a part in New Zealand politics (John Balance, Joseph Ward, Bill Massey, Michael Savage), in its literature (Thomas Bracken, Dan Davin, Eileen Duggan), in its commercial success (Thomas Russell, Robert Hannah).

There are chapters on the Irish gold miners, on the battles between Orange and Green that were fought fiercely in this country, on the Irish influence in the Catholic Church, on the many Irish who became publicans or policemen, and on the discrimination suffered by the Irish immigrants in the days before being Irish was a matter of pride.
