I Heard They Went to New York City

July 28, 2008


I’m afraid we’re a little late on this one, but if you’re going to Monaghan in Ireland in the next couple of days get over to the Monaghan County Museum where they’re hosting an exhibit called “I Heard They Went to New York City.”  This photographic exhibit explores the lives of immigrants from Monaghan who went to New York taking with them a great deal of the cultural and social traditions of their homeland. 


“I Heard They Went to New York City” runs until the end of July.  If you can’t get to Ireland in time, check out the article in the current issue of Irish America magazine.
