I was saddened today to read about the death of Marianna O'Gallaher, the Quebec historian who detailed the many contributions that Irish immigrants made to Quebec Society.
I was fortunate to work with Marianna in 2008. She wrote a fantastic article for us on Grosse Ile for the Quebec at 400 special anniversary issue.
She had a great sense of humour and a real passion for her Irish heritage, and the Irish heritage of Quebec.
Her dedication and enthusiasm will be missed by many. You can read more about Marianna here
