An Irishwoman in New York: A Memoir
A Discussion with Maura Mulligan

Join the New York Irish History Roundtable and author Maura Mulligan for an evocative and vivid discussion of an Irishwoman’s experiences in New York.
Ms. Mulligan will take us on an immigrant’s journey from rural County Mayo to the bustling City of New York ‐ 1958. She’ll discuss how she adapted to a complex and diverse new culture, her first job, her first subway ride, her desire to embrace religious life as a novice in a Franciscan novitiate in Peekskill, New York, and her decision –16 years later – to leave the convent and join the world once again.
Ms. Mulligan’s memoir, Call of the Lark, is a moving portrait of one woman’s strength and determination to forge a fulfilling life. Irish Echo columnist Larry Kirwan described Call of the Lark as “an essential, revealing chapter in the Irish‐American story.”
About our guest speaker:
Since those early days in New York, Ms. Mulligan has had a varied career. She’s taught English as a second language in New York City’s public schools, and currently teaches Irish language and dance in the New York area. Her writings have appeared in the Irish Times, Irish America, The Irish Echo, the Irish Examiner, Set Dancing News and on the websites ducts.org and mrbelle
