George Leahy will explore the history of all things Irish in Rockland. Mr. Leahy's roots in Rockland County go back to the mid-1800s, when his Irish ancestors settled in Haverstraw.

The program focuses on the arrival and impact of the Irish on the political, social, and economic history of Rockland.
