Old Irish Caricatures

During the 19th century and beyond into the 20th Century, Irish people were stereotyped, much like other races of people, drawn from issues like immigration and the troublesome Irish nationaist issie.

Whilte wishing to move forwards from the past, it is important from a historical perspective to appreciate how Irish people were often portrayed.

It is commonly assumed that the main protaganists in these caricatures were the British Press such as Punch magazine. In actual fact, it was not just limited to the British Press. A lot of the American press and indeed further afield, also depicted Irish people in this manner.

It is also a reminder to Irish people today, that we treat our own immigrants with respect and courtesly, given our historical experiences..
