Well, she will soon once folks read this Wednesday's article
profiling her in The Irish Times
. Since New York City and particular New York sex is tres
hip in the Emerald Isle, the folks at the Irish Times
were quite astounded to discover a New York writer (especially an articulate, urbane young woman) who begs to dissent from the prevailing trend. So they gave her a call, and there she is, with her photo above the fold on the front page. I can't boast of anything comparable, though our campus Eucharistic procession nearly made the top of the front page of the Fort Wayne-South Bend diocesan paper, but, well, the Pope died and we got bumped to below the fold.
Incidentally, a New York born-and-bred friend of mine tells me that the latest trend is for nouveau-riche
Dubliners to get apartments in Manhattan. Apparently there's an apartment building going up in Midtown which is likely to be more than half-Irish. I guess we're a long way from Ellis Island these days.
