Ireland America

July 22nd, 2011 armare12

As President Obama’s visit to Dublin and the little town of his ancestors, Moneygall, made clear, Ireland and America share a special connection.  And , it’s not just that everyone in America loves being Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. To me, it seems like the two countries could be referred to as sisters, congruent in their struggle for independence and self-definition–and the fact that 40 million Americans claim Irish roots most definitely solidifies this bond between two countries, 3,000 miles apart.

Here’s a link to an exhibit currently running in NY’s Public Library, so if you’re from NY, or planning a road trip to the Big Apple this summer, it’s something you might want to check out! I’m planning on getting there myself within the next few weeks (unfortunately, the exhibit is ending its run on August 12th), so will report back once I visit!
