Fall Tour 2012

What more can you ask for?  Fall in New England.  Great weather.  And best of all folks to share it with.  There were more Lowell historians there than you can shake a stick at.   Walter and Karen Hickey have been essential in much of new research uncovered about Lowell's first Irish.  Mo Comtois has done an amazing amount of work recording Lowell's Civil War past.  Eileen Loucraft has her own blog about Lowell and World War I.  Kim Zinino from the historic board will be leading a tour of Edson next week.  Mike Lally from the Lowell Cemetery joined us as well this year.  It began with the dedication of markers from the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Mercy Drive.  This is a project begun by Donna Reidy to remember those who are interred without benefit of a grave marker. There's potential for a Spring tour of the office side of the cemetery if folks are interested.  Let us know.

  2. Hi David,
    I finally made it after missing your tour for the past 2 years. I just wanted to thank you again for a great tour and all the great info. I plan to attend the Spring Tour also. Thank you to you and Walter and all those that keep the Lowell Irish History alive in great fashion and with an eye to sharing and making it more accessible to the public. It is very much appreciated. - Mary Depew Worcester MA
