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
