This is an ongoing donation from Mr Stephen Griffin, at present numbering some 4,000 items, reflecting the history, experience and printed output of the Irish-American diaspora. It includes major works by Irish-American writers such as James T. Farrell and Eugene O’Neill, American editions of Irish literature, critical and biographical works, and many rare books and pamphlets.
