Recommended Follow (Irish / Irish-American History)

If you're interested in the histories of  Ireland, slavery, Irish slaves, and slogans such as "no Irish need apply,"  please seek out historian Liam Hogan. He's aided in debunking the denial that "No Irish Need Apply" existed; he's also done yeoman's work dismantling the mythology that the Irish were sold into chattel slavery (here's one example of how he handles this ridiculous myth).

You can find his Medium page here
On Twitter, he's known as @Limerick1914
If  the history of Irish immigration is your thing, you should definitely follow him.
