McGUIGAN, Peter T. The Irish. (Tantallon : Four East Publications, November1991). First Printing. Pp (4),v-vi,1-74. Illustrated. 8vo, green card cove rs. In the Peoples of the Maritimes series. "Ireland, cool, misty and green, is the ancestral home of many Maritimers. Beginning in the 1600s, the Irish flocked to these shores, lured by free land and opportunity and to escape famine and politics at home. Bringing their language, religion and customs, the Irish settled in pockets throughout the Maritimes, founding universities and churches, taking active roles in politics and business, and influencing literature and social organizations. One has only to visit towns in the region today to hear traditional Irish music, recognize surnames or taste a traditional meal." - from the rear cover. Vg.
