Abstract

This article describes a discussion that the author had with John O'Leary, an Irish poet. It discusses the nature of what it means to be "Irish" and "Irish-American" and talks about how many modern people of Irish descent are focusing more on the ancient Irish traditions rather than the stereotypical Irish-American images of famine victims and green beer.
