Lectures on New Bedford's curious ties to Irish History. Famine, Friends & Fenians, a major exhibition on Ireland and New Bedford, opened in October to rave reviews and runs through Labor Day. Special thanks to the Carney Family Charitable Foundation and to Norm and Maryellen Sullivan Shachoy for leading the fundraising efforts. Major loans came from the Ryan Family, The Boston Marine Society, Egan Maritime Institute, Marion Antiques, The Charitable Irish Society, and Quinnipiac University. A traveling exhibit on whaling in Co. Mayo from the Irish National Park Service deepens our knowledge and understanding of early 20th century whaling. A comprehensive book is a fine companion piece to the exhibit and explores in more detail the curious links between the United States and Ireland.
