Irish Times journalist Sorcha Pollak is the writer of the weekly New to the Parish series, which focuses on migration and immigrant communities in Ireland. Sorcha’s book based on the series has just been published and to celebrate its release we hosted a special live episode of the podcast at The Dean Hotel in Dublin. Our guests on the night were Sorcha and three women she has interviewed for the series: Syrian woman Maisa Al-Hariri, a student in business and economics at UCD who came to Ireland from Greece with her family in December 2016. Flavia Camejo, who grew up in the city of Coro in northern Venezuela and worked as a journalist for a national newspaper before moving to Ireland in 2014. And Janneke van Nijnanten who moved to Ireland from the Netherlands in 2011.
