The Boston Irish by Thomas H. O'Connor, a renowned Boston scholar, is a quick 300 plus page account of the struggle of the Irish within Boston from the time they first set their Catholic feet in the already-well-established Protestant colony to the 'New Boston' of modern times that faced the racial and economic crunches of current urban centers. O'Connor masterfully weaves the tale of the Irish as they ride the coattails of beloved and sometimes underhanded politicians and clergymen to the power and central authority of the City on the Hill. Taking into account the local and national issues of the changing times, O'Connor is able to accurately and eloquently lead the reader from point A to point B with ease.
