On the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, we discuss the Irish in Maine. Irish immigrants came here at a time of economic and social change in the United States, working as longshoremen, factory workers, brewers and more. By the end of the 19th century, the Irish were an integral part of the Maine social fabric. Our guests include the executive director of the Irish Heritage Center and a well-known historian of the Irish diaspora in Maine.
