Blazing A Trail: A New Exhibit from Ireland

We were glad to hear the inspiring talks at the Chicago Irish consulate 5th Friday Networking Breakfast. We were also glad to see the new exhibit there, titled Blazing A Trail: Lives and Legacies of Irish-American Women today. Mother Jones is among the women featured!

Statue committee member Brigid Duffy made a presentation about our statue campaign, a short talk that was very well received.

Here are some images of the event, including panels from the exhibit that was at the Chicago Irish consulate.
