Written by Professor of Anthropology Seamus P. Metress and Professor Emeritus of Public Health Eileen K. Metress, Irish in Michigan is a thoughtful history of generations of Irish who have immigrated to or been born in Michigan from 1640 to the present day. Surveying urban Irish in Detroit, the Irish beyond Detroit, and Michigan-Irish demographics today, Irish in Michigan, is a thoughtfully written, fact-filled, and highly enjoyable tour of a people's shared history. Black-and-white photographs, notes, an index, and appendices listing resources for Michigan's Irish, Catholic Parishes in Michigan with heavily Irish origins, and Irish ethnic specialties round out this enlightening chronicle.
