Ireland’s tumultuous heritage combined with the promise of cosmopolitan New York to forge a new Irish-American immigrant identity. Between the Great Irish Famine and the creation of the Irish Free State, the New York Irish world preserved as much from the old country as it adopts from the new.
The Shamrock and the Lily illuminates a set of remarkable transatlantic connections dominated by the road to Ireland’s independence, in an absorbing study of a people driven from a troubled past toward freedom for themselves and for those they left behind.
