The College of Charleston’s Irish Studies summer school makes its pilgrimage to Ballyshane, on the Grand Canal, near Shannon Harbour. One of our program’s first friends, Denis Bergin, lives here with his wife Carol, and they hosted our scholars for tea and cakes on our way from Dublin to Galway last Saturday.

Mr. Bergin, who lived for fifteen years in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, donated his papers to the Irish Heritage Project in our Addlestone Library when he returned to Ireland. We finished cataloguing those papers this year and they will soon be available to scholars and the public. Mr. Bergin’s generous donation is the first contribution to what we hope will become the most important archive regarding the Irish in the South.
