As President Higgins begins his historic State visit to Britain today, we want to hear from emigrants of all ages about their reactions to this week’s events. Are you attending, or watching on with interest? Does it make you proud to be an Irish person living in Britain? If you’ve lived in the UK for many years, does the visit highlight how much has changed over the years? Or are you indifferent?
