There may be only 5 million of us in Ireland, but there are 40 million Americans who claim Irish ancestry and thats not counting the other 35 million of us scattered around the world. Thats the power of 70 million voices. Think about that! AMoreThere may be only 5 million of us in Ireland, but there are 40 million Americans who claim Irish ancestry and thats not counting the other 35 million of us scattered around the world.

Thats the power of 70 million voices. Think about that! A collection of short stories and poetry based a familys struggle for survival in Ireland during the 1950s when unemployment was rampant. We tip-toed around the local high and mighty and hid our fear of the English, the Church and hunger, behind a veil of laughter.

We were no match atall for any of the old world powers back then, but we did out-last the lot of them. Today, theyre all crumbling right in front of our eyes. This collection of short stories will make you laugh and may even make you cry- they show an account of every-day life of the unemployed and their struggle to survive hunger and poverty. Fear was used to control the peoples every thought and deed. If that wasnt enough, there are hundreds of years of war with an old world empire hanging over our heads. Two religions moved in and betrayed us all and pitted us against each other.

Some families were lucky to survive long enough to make their way to America, and thank god America took the Irish in by the millions. The fairies must have been watching over us for we fit right in, we were the right color, we spoke English (our own Irish version of it) and we worshipped the same god, so to speak. No sooner did we set a foot on American soil, we worked and worked and soon got our pride back- we often fed our families at home. If it wasnt for the fairies watching over the Irish people, ye might not hear this side of our story.

We Irish must have the courage to continue to pass along our story. Without our Irish humor and Americas generosity to take us in and give us a second chance, god knows what would have become of us. Thank god for the new world.
