Modern Journeys: The Irish in Detroit, Volumes 1 & 2
Published by the United Irish Societies

Volume 1 contains 248 pages and includes twenty-three oral histories of Irish and Irish-Americans, each telling of his or her (or the family's) coming over and of their lives here. Included are Neal Shine, former Michigan Attorney General Frank Kelley, Supreme Court Justice Michael Cavanagh, singer Charlie Taylor, Chris Murray, Tim and Mike O'Hare, and a host of others spinning out their tales of personal and family experiences. The book also includes a history of the Irish in Detroit from the Encyclopedia of the Irish in America, a short history of Corktown, a few short biographies, and a bibliography. Finally, the book contains a large section about the various Irish organizations around Detroit, their histories and purpose.

Volume 2, with 295 pages, expands on Volume 1 with 26 additional oral histories, stories of three Orders of nus who taught the Irish in the early days, and a fascinating history of Detroit’s Irish pubs and publicans.

Both books are illustrated and are fully indexed.
