This book contains a miscellany of views and perspectives by people – many in Africa, South America and Asia – who have experienced the work of Irish missionaries. Reflecting on the Irish missionary movement, it illustrates the geographical shift of Christianity to the Global South where a vibrant new movement is continuing the legacy of the Irish missionaries.

Is the missionary era coming to an end? For decades Ireland was one of the great missionary-sending countries in the world. Those missionaries hardly realised the long-term impact their work would have in the Global South. Today, thousands of young men and women there are offering themselves as missionaries to serve in their own countries and elsewhere.

This book contains a miscellany of views and perspectives by people – many in Africa, South America and Asia – who have experienced the work of Irish missionaries. Reflecting on the Irish missionary movement, it illustrates the geographical shift of Christianity to the Global South where a vibrant new movement is continuing the legacy of the Irish missionaries. It explores the work on advocacy, social justice and climate change by faith-inspired organisations at the United Nations. Twinning is explained as a new human bridge between parishes in Ireland and the Global South, along with the increasing role of lay missionary volunteers.

'This book will be a valuable resource for historians and documentary makers, for students undertaking research, for those interested in international development and volunteering, and for media personnel, as well as the general reader. I am pleased to recommend it.'   Mary Robinson
