Enchanting Ireland
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter opens with an ethnographic description of a ‘Jesus Walk’ through Drogheda, a ‘pilgrimage-like’ walk undertaken by migrants that aimed to bless and re-enchant the landscape of an Irish town. This chapter explains the importance of religion in the lives of Nigerian and Congolese migrants living in Ireland, from those within the asylum system to migrant-led, Pentecostal church leaders preaching throughout Ireland. One of the broad questions herein is: what are the relationships between religion and integration? Herein, again, we focus on everyday experiences as a way through which to understand the imbrication of religion into other aspects of people’s lives and discuss the ways in which migrant-led churches are facilitating what they see as a re-enchantment of landscape.
