Shane MacGowan, the Diaspora and the coming 2nd Irish Republic.

Shane MacGowan, the Diaspora and the coming 2nd Irish Republic.

We mark the death of Shane MacGowan by looking at the Irish Diaspora, particularly in England and its impact on English popular culture. From there we look at Ireland's relationship with its Tribe abroad and from there, we imagine what a 2nd Irish Republic will look like (which will happen because it's necessary) and the role of the diaspora in this thinking.
