PALERMO, Elisa. Usos del pasado, memoria e identidad entre un grupo de descendientes de inmigrantesirlandeses de Buenos Aires: Una lectura a partir de dos héroes culturales. Avá [online]. 2007, n.11, pp.87-116. ISSN 1851-1694.

As a result of hunger, poverty and lack of political and religious liberties in Ireland, a great number of Irish immigrants arrived to Argentina in the mid of the nineteenth century. Still nowadays, descendents of those immigrants continue to celebrate and commemorate Irish festivities and national days, to participate in Irish-argentine institutions founded by their ancestors and sharing hobbies in Irish clubs. The present article intends to analyze through two historic figures (Father Fahy and Admiral Brown), the way in which these people, joined in what they call "community", symbolically recreate the past, being able to legitimate themselves in time and space, joining their present with both pasts -the argentine and the Irish pasts- and being able to construct a dual identity that, without forgetting costumes and traditions inherited by their Irish routes, goes beyond "the Irish" to amalgamate with and place into the nation that adopted and sheltered their parents and grandparents.

Palavras-chave : Identity; Collective Memory; Uses of the Past.
