 Synopsis

A letter mailed from Valentia Island, County Kerry, Ireland, in 1949 provides an important link that connects family in America to cousins in Ireland. Extensive research through archival records in Dublin as well as vital information gathered in America furnishes the author and her husband with the information necessary to locate the villages, townlands, cemeteries, and parishes of her great-grandparents. Centuries-old family cottages are located and “treasures” are revealed. Secrets are uncovered and attached to those secrets are heartbreaking accounts of lives rife with hardships, unhappiness, and fierce family pride.

 Synopsis

 March 17th—that time of year when Chicago dyes its river green, revelers line the parade routes, beer takes on the hue of the shamrock, and Irish musicians tune their fiddles and play the old favorites—that one day when everyone is Irish.  But what about the rest of the year?  The other 364 days?  If you find yourself suffering from withdrawal for the sheer want of an Irish experience, take a look at what’s inside this book, for Finding Your Chicago Irish is your guide to Irish in Chicago and suburbs.
