Frank Delaney at the American Irish Historical Society

On Monday, April 27th. Frank spoke to a rapt audience of old friends and new at the beautiful townhouse of the American Irish Historical Society.  A small reception was planned and prepared by legendary caterer, Andrea Giardino, and featured parsnip cakes, smoked trout on Irish brown bread, and classic, Irish scones with cream and jam.  Smooth shots of Irish whiskey fueled the crowd, who enjoyed one another’s company along with Frank’s stories of the value and importance of myth to his books, Ireland, Tipperary and now, Shannon.
