Hello all of Ohio, and Pittsburgh too! This is our first issue to be delivered en masse in Pittsburgh. Detroit, Buffalo, Newport/Covington/Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Nashville … who’s next?

We will add Irish communities within these states as they develop. By people of action, we have been invited to a few, selected a few, and are open to wherever the road less traveled takes us. If you would like to help, my email is jo*****@ii****.us.

There is much more within, the usual mix of news, events, history and history being made, sports, reviews, food and the movers, shakers and music makers, plus activities for the kids too.
