Stories of famous and infamous Irish people in Paris through the centuries
by Isadore Ryan
About the Book
From Chicago May Duignan to James Joyce, from Brendan Behan to Daniel O'Connell, this richly illustrated book tells the story of Irish deeds and misdeeds in Paris from the 7th century to the present day
Living in Paris for most of the past 18 years, I have developed a strong interest in the history of this city and its inhabitants. For many years, I have been researching the history of the Irish in Paris. My impressionistic review of their exploits in La Ville Lumiere is contained in the book 'Irish Paris'. I am interested in continuing this project further, possibly by focusing more intensely on some characters in this book that deserve far more attention than they have received--The Count Gerald O'Kelly de Gallagh springs instantly to mind.
