“We draw on the in­domitable spirit of those Ir­ish Amer­i­cans whose strength helped build count­less miles of canals and rail­roads; whose brogues echoed in mills, po­lice sta­tions, and fire halls across our coun­try; and whose blood spilled to de­fend a na­tion and a way of life they helped de­fine. De­fy­ing famine, poverty, and dis­crim­i­na­tion, these sons and daugh­ters of Erin demon­strated ex­tra­or­di­nary strength and un­shak­able faith as they gave their all to help build an Amer­ica wor­thy of the jour­ney they and so many oth­ers have taken.”

( Pres­i­dent Obama’s of­fi­cial procla­ma­tion rec­og­niz­ing Ir­ishAmer­i­can Her­itage Month, is­sued Thurs­day.)
