Summary Since 9/11, interest in Muslims in Europe has increased significantly. There has been much public debate and academic research focused on Muslims living in larger Western European countries like Britain, France or Germany, but little is known of Muslims in Ireland. This book fills this gap, providing a complete study of this unexplored Muslim presence, from the arrival of the first Muslim resident in Cork in 1784 up to the mass immigration to the Republic of Ireland during the 'Celtic Tiger' period from the mid-1990s onwards. -- jacket.
