Over 40 million Americans claim Irish roots -- that's 1 in 5! In the spirit of traditional Irish good humour, Russ Malone creates an outstanding guide that will aid any traveller in need of a glimpse of Irish American heritage, or a new favourite pub anywhere across the US. From coast to coast you will be able to discover Irish American accomplishments amid American politics, culture, and landscape. Like no other publications, the Guide to Irish America describes and lists 905 Irish American landmarks that relate to famous Irish Americans and Irish American heritage. But best of all, this guide lists what makes the Irish American so popular once a year -- 118 St Patrick's Day celebrations taking place nationally. Here you will also find the listing, together with the author's comments, of 374 Irish pubs which are scattered across the country.
