A strong oral tradition together with a variety of literary works and other written records have given us a broad general knowledge of the cultural and political history of the Irish immigrants who settled in North America during the past four centuries. This directory adds a further dimension to our understanding of Irish immigration and its contributions to American culture. Reflecting a growing scholarly interest in the material side of cultural history, it is the first work to offer complete information on Irish-American archival and artifact collections, historic sites, and festivals.
