The Irish in America

Here's an interesting article that contains a brief history of Irish immigration to America. 

When the Irish come, they stay. Irish have immigrated to the United States since the 1600s, dominating politics, the church and, at times, popular culture. Among those who come to the US, the Irish are among the most likely to settle and stay, often identifying themselves as “Irish-Americans.”

It's hard to imagine America's growth and prosperity without the influence of the Irish immigrants, many of whom were hated after they arrived here.  Oh how some things never change.
