The Gathering: Collected Oral Histories of the Irish in Montana

Home – The Gathering – The University Of Montana.

. . . Michael Collins, Ireland’s ambassador to the United States, delivered a $100,000 grant to support the collection of Montana’s Irish heritage through an oral history project affiliated with the University of Montana.

The project is called “The Gathering: Collected Oral Histories of the Irish in Montana,” and is an interdisciplinary project that will record and archive the oral histories and folk traditions of the state’s Irish immigrants and descendants.
