Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society Monographs (CIAHS)

Green Sprigs From The Emerald Isle collects Irish folklore and tall tales from Connecticut newspapers from the 19th century. These humorous tales are a window into the lives of the early Irish immigrants, showing both the stereotypes assigned to the Irish of the day and the recognition that these Irish in America were witty, intelligent, and industrious people. Collected and edited by Neil Hogan.
