Gabriela McEvoy presented a paper entitled “The Big Shot of Irish in Peru” at the New England American Conference for Irish Studies at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy at Buzzards Bay, MA. on November 4, 2016.

This presentation addressed the question of how Irish immigrants played an important role in Peruvian’s economy, national politics, and culture. McEvoy’s paper aimed to answer this question by examining William R. Grace and John Patrick Gallagher’s socio-economic development in Peruvian society.
