Born in America, reared as a child and educated as an adult in Ireland. I may have been born in the States, but Ireland will always be home to me. I'm a former award-winning journalist of some 15 years, so accuracy and truth are very important to me. Everyone must know the truth of An Gorta Mór—too many still believe that hundreds upon hundreds of thousands died simply because of several years of a potato crop failure in Ireland in the 1840s.
