Stops in Plymouth

Along with Kingston, Plymouth is synonymous with the Pilgrims, but the Irish also played a significant part in Plymouth history. Original Irish were servants and laborers but others such as James Magee were heroic revolutionary patriots. One wonders, however, if the original Plymouth Puritan settlers would have chosen an Irish born poet to write and deliver his poem at the dedication of the monument to the Pilgrim Fathers. It certainly demonstrates the admiration contemporaries had for John Boyle O’Reilly.

About Plymouth

The Town of Plymouth bears the distinction of being the only town on The Irish Heritage Trail, and in fact all of the South Shore, to have a dedicated Irish Collection in its Public Library. The Collection began with funding from Genevieve Ash, and has continued to grow up to and including the present time.
