My great- grandfather came to America, as an IRA member, in order to escape being hung by the British.  My great-grandmother, his wife, came to America as an orphan.  They raised a family in the Bronx, until he commit suicide.  I am now a third generation American and a first generation Californian after my mother left the hardcore Irish neighborhood she grew up in.  My family members are proud to be Irish-Americans and they are still living in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Boston, where many Irish settled when they first came to America.  Most of my family never left.

It's good that you know so much about your family history. I wish my mum would have spoken more about hers. I think it gives you an idea of how you got here, who you are, and how you can move on too.
