Most of my work this year for the American Reporting of Irish Independence section of this blog has focused on the American Committee for Relief in Ireland. The 1921 fund drive provided $5 million to Ireland through summer 1922. Three of the 10 stories below were published outside the blog. Three key relief committee documents are also linked below the photo.
Cardinal Gibbons, who died 100 years ago, was committed to Ireland, Catholic Review (Baltimore)
War relief to Listowel and North Kerry, 1921, Listowel Connection
Forgotten Charity Between Ireland and America, 1889 & 1921, The Irish Story
