This chapter examines the history of Irish immigrants in Australia and New Zealand during the period from 1870 to 1990. The Irish ideal of farming was realised to a very significant extent by the immigrants who lived in rural areas. Though only a few of them became wealthy, most of them made a reasonable and contented living. However, those who remained in the cities experienced various types of discrimination, and were employed in unskilled occupations.

Keywords:   Irish immigrants, Australia, New Zealand, farming, rural areas, cities, unskilled occupations, discrimination
