Erin go ball

(And I hope that doesn’t mean anything dirty or inappropriate in Gaelic.)

In honor of St.Patrick’s Day, I offer two Irish-themed pieces I’ve done:

  • review on of Charley Rosen’s The Emerald Diamond: How the Irish Transformed America’s Greatest Pastime.
  • The Sporting Life,”An overview of the Irish in America’s national pastime, published in the February/March 2003 issue of  Irish America.

Sorry for the “meh” quality of the reprint, but the actual article isn’t on the magazine’s website.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
