The Mission Girls

Thursday, March 28, 2019 7 PM Glucksman Ireland House
Maureen Murphy
Between 1883 and 1908, nearly 310,000 young Irish immigrant women passed through the Port of New York. The Mission of Our Lady of the Rosary for the Protection of Irish Immigrant Girls took care of almost 100,000 of them. In a talk about this remarkable migration, Hofstra University’s Maureen Murphy describes the founding of the Mission inspired by Charlotte Grace O’Brien, the early workers at the Mission, the support given by Irish organizations and the Catholic Church, and the young Irish women themselves as they arrived and joined the Irish American community.
