The Irish Bridget
Irish Immigrant Women in Domestic Service in America, 1840–1930

Margaret Lynch-Brennan

With a Foreword by Maureen O’Rourke Murphy

Cloth $39.95s    |    978-0-8156-3201-6    |    2009

Drawing on personal correspondence and other primary sources, Lynch-Brennan gives voice to these young Irish women and celebrates their untold contribution to the ethnic history of the United States.

"Densely documented with personal accounts, drawing on interviews and letters to let the women tell their own stories. As the first full-length scholarly book on female Irish servants, it will be a valuable text for educators."—American Historical Review
