Oh, those Irish!

Mark your calendars Erinophiles!
On March 17 – yes, that is Saint Patrick’s Day – Vincent Feeney will present
“The Irish Wave in the Green Mountains”.
This FREE program will start at 5pm in the Crowell Gallery and is co-hosted by Moore Free Library and Windham County Historical Society.
Mr. Feeney is the author of Finnigans, Slaters and Stonepeggers, a history of the Irish in Vermont (which we have at the library) which peels back the Yankee mythos and examines the surprisingly rich, true story of the Irish in Vermont, from the first steady trickle of colonial pioneers to the flood of famine refugees and onward: how the Irish arrived, survived, fought, labored, organized, worshipped, played and managed to prosper. Even if you don’t have a bit of Irish blood in you, this will be a fascinating presentation.
This program is sponsored by Vermont Humanities Council.
