ILHS Speaker Series 2017
Elizabeth C. Creely, writer and public historian, will speak on Republican Daniel Harnedy and the “Sinn Fein Shoe Store” as part of her work to research and document the Irish community of San Francisco’s Mission District.
As a community historian, Elizabeth works with the Irish American Crossroads Festival, founded to promote the arts, culture, history and traditions of Irish America.
In March, 2016 Elizabeth produced a walking tour for the festival, entitled “Walking the Rebellion: Irish-Americans and the 1916 Easter Rising in the Mission District”, which explored and examined Irish and Irish American culture at home, and in meeting halls, churches and places of business within the Mission District.
Her essays have been featured in journals such as The Fourth River, The Mississippi Review and The New Hibernia Review and Found SF, an online encyclopedia of San Francisco-based history.
This event will take place on Sunday, January 29 at 5pm at the United Irish Cultural Center, SF 45th Avenue and Sloat Blvd., San Francisco.
