Invaluable Research Tool Oct. 13 2007
By Our Miss Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was able to locate my maternal GF and his
brothers and sisters in the early 1910's
using Gill's book...something like 11 members of
my family. I do wish there was more on early 20th century
Clinton itself. But still I was able to recommend it
on several Irish lists. It is an interesting piece
in the puzzle of the study of Irish Americans
in my state. I am grateful for his time and research.

Making a Better Connection Jan. 19 2013
By Brian Burgwinkle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I grew up in and still live in the Town of Clinton. I am of predominantly Irish descent. My father was half Irish(Garvey) and my mother was all Irish(McNamara). My mothers grandfather Patrick McNamara came to America and Clinton by my own estimation sometime in the late 1880's from Louisburgh County Mayo. My mothers father(Frank A. McNamara) was born in Clinton in 1892. I remember from a very young age the mention of Ireland, and things Irish, and County Mayo and a town called Louisburgh. When I was young I always thought it an odd name for an Irish town. Now having briefly visited Louisburgh several times and reading about the area I understand how the town got its name. I have not been able to find where exactly where in the Louisburgh area my mothers grandfather may have come from.
I was always very much aware of a connection between Louisburgh and the Town of Clinton, Massachusetts.
This was reinforced and validated when I did visit Ireland. I enjoy reading Irish literature and Irish history and about County Mayo.
This book is a good study documenting the very strong connection between Louisburgh and Clinton. I am glad it has been given some scholarly attention. There are probably many rich veins of this connection yet unexplored.
This was a good beginning.
