Modern research in this field has been pioneered by Louis Cullen (see ‘The Irish Diaspora of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries', in Nicholas Canny (ed.), Europeans on the move: studies on European migration (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994), pp 113-49).  Two composite works in which project members were centrally involved provide an overview of recent research: Irish and Scottish Mercantile Networks in Europe and Overseas in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, eds. David Dickson, Jane Ohlmeyer and Jan Parmentier (Gent: Academia Press, 2007), and The Bordeaux-Dublin Letters, 1757:  Correspondence of an Irish Community Abroad, eds. L. M. Cullen, John Shovlin and Thomas M. Truxes (Oxford: University Press, 2013).
