New Brunswick Biographical Profiles

Our province of New Brunswick owes a debt of gratitude to the Irish immigrants who greatly contributed to the settling of the province, and indeed our whole country. This section contains portraits of individual Irish in New Brunswick, and of eminent persons connected with Ireland, who have distinguished themselves through the office they held, or by their artistic expression, business and leadership acumen, or general contributions to the mosaic of New Brunswick’s history.

We invite our members and readers to contribute articles or suggestions for biographies and to return to the site frequently to see what’s been added.

Enjoy your visit!
