You may have noticed an exhibit in the St. Kate's library, St. Paul campus, on the Irish immigrant experience. The display comes to us from the Irish Mission at Watson House Project where Maureen Murphy, Ph.D., professor emerita of Irish Studies at Hofstra University, serves as historian with John Ridge.

Dr. Murphy has curated this exhibit and she will speak on campus on Monday, February 12 to share her research and tell stories of the Irish immigrants.
