  • I read this book in the hopes that I could learn about some Irish relatives that lived in Cleveland during the late 1800's, early 1900's. Although the family members I was searching for were not included in this book, I did get a good sense of how influential the Irish were not only in the beginnings of Cleveland, but also up to the present. There were many photographs and points of interest including Irish churches, cemeteries, sports figures and politicians. A nice slice of Cleveland life.
