Mary O’Connor is the product of a family and a town divided by the conflicting values of the "shanty" and "lace-curtain" Irish. Originally published in 1948, The Parish and the Hill is now identified as one of the finest works of Irish American fiction, and one of the first to explore Irish life from a woman's point of view. The book may mean more to fellow Irish-Americans from Holyoke than to others, but I found the character studies of lace curtain and shanty Irish of "Ireland Parish" rang very true. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the society and life of a nearly a century ago in this small mill town.

This book, written in 1948, is the story of a young Irish girl in Holyoke, MA, She is second generation Irish, and this is the story of her family and of prejudices, not just against the Irish by Americans, but by each other. She is "shanty Irish", and some of the people are"lace-curtain Irish". They feel they've made it, and look down on the shanty Irish, who haven't melded with "upper class" Irish or the Yankees who the lace-curtains are trying to blend in with. Her mother has several brothers, some of whom drink themselves to death. Her father looks down on not only the 'shanty Irish", with whom he lives, but on his own family as well. An enjoyable read.

I needed this book for a course. After many troubles I finally received it and started reading it this week. It is great! The Parish and the Hill provides insight into the lives of Irish immigrants outside of Boston in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This tale of the Irish are related through the eyes of Mary O'Connor. She shows us how the Irish were treated, their reasons for immigrating, and how they worked to assimilate.

All in all a simple novel with deep ideas. Treat it as a photograph of the Irish American experience early last century.
