An Irish Voice
by Niall O’Dowd
ISBN: 9781847172235
O’Brien 2010
318 lth
Written in English
How a typical Irish emigrant rose to a position of influence at the highest levels of US and Irish politics.
A remarkable first-hand account of an Irish emigrant who began as a part-time footballer and house-painter, and became a journalist, author, founder and publisher of two newspapers, a magazine and website, as well as a leading advocate for immigration reform for the ‘illegal’ Irish in the United States. He played a pivotal role in the Northern Ireland peace process, securing a US visa for Gerry Adams in 1994 and acting as intermediary between the White House and Sinn Féin during a critical time in the peace negotiations.
Niall O’Dowd is the author of Fire in the Morning, about the Irish at the World Trade Centre on 9/11, founder of Irish America magazine, Irish Voice newspaper and IrishCentral.com, an adjunct professor of journalism at Columbia University. A native of Ireland, (his father was from Cillchuile, Ballydavid Co. Kerry, same village as Litriocht.com is based today) he now lives in New York.
He has been described as: ‘the authentic voice of the Irish in America, who has more knowledge of this community than almost anyone else alive,’ by Jim Dwyer, New York Times and Pulitzer Prize winner.
