The Irish (and Irish Americans) in Cuba

Many ethnicities contributed to Cuba’s culture and history.  Among them were the Irish who came directly or through Spain and the US.  Cuba reciprocated when Father Felix Varela was exiled to New York and became the advocate of Ireland’s famine immigrants.  The father of Irish Independence leader and President Eamon de Valera was a Cuban who was sent by his family to New York to escape the Spanish draft.

Muchas etnias contribuyeron a la cultura e historia de Cuba. Entre ellos estaban los irlandeses que vinieron directamente oa través de España y los EE. UU. Cuba correspondió cuando el padre Félix Varela fue exiliado a Nueva York y se convirtió en defensor de los inmigrantes hambrientos de Irlanda. El padre del líder de la independencia irlandesa y presidente Eamon de Valera era un cubano que fue enviado por su familia a Nueva York para escapar del reclutamiento español.
