Today, I (Eamon Loingsigh), Malachy McCourt and the publishing team at Three Rooms Press will be on WBAI Radio-NYC at 2 pm! (Eastern Standard Time, 1 Central). 

The topic is being an Irish immigrant in New York City. Malachy McCourt compares and contrasts his own experiences as a young Irish immigrant in New York City during the 1950s to the descriptions of the young Liam Garrity in 1910s.

Check it out and give it a listen, should be fun!

Oops, I didn't specify, but Liam Garrity is the protagonist in "Light of the Diddicoy," the historical novel due for publication on St. Patrick's Day this year. Sorry, ugh.

Looking forward to this -- I grew up in Brooklyn, with both sets of Irish-born grandparents (Castlebar, Portadown and Belfast) settling there in the period 1908-1920. Interestingly, we grew up understanding there was a class distinction between the 'lace curtain' and 'shanty' Irish.   My father worked on the docks before he joined the NYPD.  Best of luck with the book!
