The St. Louis Irish: An Unmatched Celtic Community

A French-founded frontier village that transformed into a booming 19th-century industrial mecca dominated by Germans, the city of St. Louis nonetheless resounds from the influence of Irish immigrants. Faherty's compelling and comprehensive tale about the Irish in St. Louis details the group's significant role in the development of area businesses, hospitals, schools, the Catholic Church, and even the game of soccer.
