Product Description

The Five Points and Shanty Town is a 25-page illustrated narrative about the trials and tribulations faced by those who fled An Gorta Mor (The Great Hunger) and were forced to settled in the slums of New York.  It describes how they kept their traditions alive while earning enough money to fund the passage of those they were forced to leave behind.  It also describes some of the traditions they established as they eventually raised their standard of living to take their place as proud contributing citizens making America a bit Irish in the process.
