Book captures spirit of the Irish

It may be March and it may already be St. Patrick’s Day – but it is just the right time to catch up on a December feature on a book about the Irish, written by John Shaughnessy, assistant editor of  The Criterion, newspaper of the Indianapolis Archdiocese. 

“I wanted to write a book that would be a tribute to Irish immigrants, like my grandparents, who came to America with their most important possessions: their dreams,” Shaughnessy told Criterion editor Mike Krokos. The book was published by Corby Books in Notre Dame, Ind.

“These stories would connect with most people because most of the stories in the books are about fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives — all relationships that touch our lives,” Shaughnessy added.
