Event description
Book discussion with historian Patrick J. Mahoney on the prose writing of Eoin Ua Cathail

About this event

Writer and historian Patrick J. Mahoney will discuss the life of 19th-century Limerick emigrant Eoin Ua Cathail, whose writings are published for the first time in a new bilingual volume, Recovering an Irish Voice from the American Frontier (UNT Press, 2021). Based on his experiences in the southwestern and upper midwestern United States, Ua Cathail harnessed the richness of the Irish language to describe a wide range of topics - from fierce clashes with Native American tribes and a chance encounter with a runaway slave to the midwestern timber industry and the emergence of the Gaelic Revival.

About the author:

Patrick J. Mahoney is a Caspersen Fellow in History and Culture at Drew University and a Fulbright Scholar at the National University of Ireland Galway. He is the co-author of From a Land beyond the Wave: Connecticut's Irish Rebels, 1798-1916.
