3 thoughts on “Irish History

  1. For those of you who remember Gilligan’s Island with the Wrong-way Feldman episode, the “Wrong Way Corrigan” report from January 2019 is a must read.

  2. The story of the Sullivan brothers is a great example of Irish-American patriotism and the sacrifices made not only by the 5 Sullivan brothers, but also the sacrifice of the Sullivan family.
