The Irish in Washington: The Swampoodle Trilogy

Author Paul Belford discusses his books, the Swampoodle Trilogy, which follows the fortunes of three generations of the Hennessey and Riley family. Outcasts landing on a foreign shore, they trusted to Providence and mercy that a better place was to be built and, by their faith and courage, they helped to build it – America. For those wishing for a truer sense and feel of the Irish in our now common American heritage, the Swampoodle Trilogy is offered.
