The revised edition
|When I started this page in May
of '99, little did I realize how far it would take me.
I've gone from the newguy thrills of
marquee and animated gifs, to making my own banners,
buttons, and tables. I have tried to change it so the
opening page will load a wee bit faster.
One thing hasn't changed, however, and that is my pride and passion for Ireland and the anthracite coal fields of east-central Pennsylvania.
So here is my site, a historical and cultural peek at the Irish-American community in the hard coal region.
Take a look around, enjoy your visit, and come again. Slan
