Irish Need Not Apply: A History of the Irish in Boston with Historian Christopher Daley Wednesday, March 27 ~ 7:00pm
Peabody Institute Library, Danvers
15 Sylvan Street, Danvers
Beginning with a look at the scant evidence of the Irish brought over as indentured servants in the late 17th Century, historian Chris Daley will explore the first real migration of the Irish in 1718, the arrival of the Scot-Irish or the 'Ulster Irish,’ and the corresponding increase in Anti-Irish/Catholic sentiment within Boston.
Currently a history teacher in Kingston, Daley formerly served as the Chairman of the Pembroke Historical Commission and the President of the Pembroke Historical Society. He received both his Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree from Bridgewater State University. He has been presenting historical lectures for nearly 20 years.
