The Irish in America Broadcast Time: (2:44 )

This is where we have a chance to cover local history
in America (or anywhere in the world really).

History and Genealogy Podcast
I started this podcast with the story of the Irish in
Missouri, primarily due to the information I had
uncovered when writing the book ‘Missouri Irish’ in
1984. That book, the first of its kind, was first published
as ‘Irish Settlers on the American Frontier.’  We have
interviews with quite a few folks, telling the story of the
Irish in the region.

Kansas City Irish, St. Louis Irish
This podcast series focus is on local history of the Irish
in America (so far). It includes genealogy notes on specific
families. Kansas City, St. Louis, and the Irish Wilderness
in SE Missouri are main topics of the first segment.

Local Politics and Personalities
We cover Irish politics and the Pendergast regime, the
early settlements of the Irish here, including the
Irish Wilderness under Fr. Hogan and in Kansas City
under Father Bernard Donnelly.  There are also a few
interviews with Irish dancers in these areas.

Lost Tribes of the Irish in Georgia
We also include the Irish in Savannah, Georgia.
This was due to the interest and activity of Walt Harper,
who has a good knowledge of the subject, for starters.
I enjoyed taking the Irish Roots Cafe mobile unit down
to Savannah and speaking there earlier this year.
The Irish are represented very well in Savannah,
and that would include Kevin Barrys on the waterfront.
HIbernians, Dancers, and Singers are out in strength
in this historic town.

Preparing For 2009
Our next season should begin in 2009, assuming I
can get some help from an interested local historian
in your area !  Feel free to contact me about that any time.
