Kōrero: Migrant and refugee organisations

Dunedin Hibernian Society, 1873

A Dunedin branch of the Hibernians, the Irish Catholic benefit society, was formed in 1873. It required a special dispensation, or authorisation, from the main Australasian branch in Melbourne. This magnificent certificate records that dispensation. It is illustrated with images and symbols from Irish and Catholic traditions.
