Thanks for stopping by The Irish in America!


Author: Aine

I live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. My heritage pretty much covers the map of Ireland: great-great-grandparents from Cork (Crowley, Foley, Regan), a great-great-grandmother from Clare (Quinn), a great-great-grandfather from Fermanagh (McMahon) and his wife's parents from Mayo (McAndrew), a great-grandmother from Connemara (Hannon) married to my great-grandfather from Laois (McCormack), great-grandparents from Sligo (Flannery), and a great-grandmother from Kildare (Hill). All of those people ended up in Minnesota, where my four grandparents were born. Three and four generations after my people left Ireland for America, I retain all Irish heritage. So much for the melting pot...

  1. Welcome to researching the Irish in Americas! I noticed your link to Clontarf, Swift County, Minnesota. My own roots are in nearby Dublin Township, Swift County, Minnesota. All the best in your research efforts. If you come to Minnesota, please look me up….perhaps I can help with your journey.

    • Thanks! I actually live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Two of my grandparents were born in Clontarf, their grandparents having been some of the pioneer settlers to the area in the late 1870s. I have visited Ireland several times, and on my last visit I found the Irish people to be a bit more curious about their relatives who left for America. Since I have done some of my own research about my Irish relatives in America, I thought I could help them a little bit. Thanks again for the comment – I appreciate it!
