Northwestern Research Study: Children and Grandchildren of Irish Immigrants

I am a doctoral student at Northwestern seeking Irish Americans for a sociological research study on identity and culture. To be eligible, participants must have been born and raised in the Chicago area, have at least one parent or grandparent that immigrated to the US from Ireland, and be between 18 and 49 years of age. The study consists of a one to two hour interview at a location of your choice (preferably at your home or at a cafe/restaurant in your neighborhood). You will be compensated for your time. If you are eligible and interested, please email me at chicagoresearch@u.northwestern.edu.

  • Good luck with your study. I forwarded your post to a large group of people who would fit the profile.

  • @Kfkato - Thank you so much for your help!

'Welcome to Mt. Greenwood' Sign Returns After Being Stolen Repeatedly

...themselves are also a community effort. The meat is donated by S&T Provisions at 3804 W. 111th St. The Mount Greenwood Residents Association donates the spaghetti and bread. Chicago Creampuffs & Cakes at 2734...

To prevent thieves from swiping the welcome sign, the chamber spent $4,000 on a concrete version on the northwest corner of 111th Street and Whipple Street, said Myers, who also owns Baron's Shoes at 3101 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood.

To prevent thieves from swiping the welcome sign, the chamber spent $4,000 on a concrete version on the northwest corner of 111th Street and Whipple Street, said Myers, who also owns Baron's Shoes at 3101 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood.

Eventually the sign fell and broke in half. The young adults responsible for the damage were captured by video surveillance courtesy of the nearby PrivateBank branch at 3052 West 111th St. in Mount Greenwood.

Undeterred, the chamber set out to raise money for a new sign with a series of spaghetti dinners. The third — and hopefully final — such fundraiser is scheduled from 2-6 p.m. on Saturday at the Mount Greenwood Community Church, 3509 W. 111th St.

This time, the chamber is hoping to raise $5,000 for a new concrete sign that will be encased in brick. The design is intended to match a similar Mount Greenwood sign in the heart of the shopping district at 111th Street and Kedzie Avenue.

    A true shame. No discipline. Extremely poor academics. A very unpleasant place. Teachers leave during class for smoke breaks. Kids are unruly in class and no one cares. No communication. Did I mention my kid got vegetable oil thrown on her during spirit week...in main hall inside school?

    Poor. Out of control. Walking through the hallways during class changes is like being in a riot. Mold on walls in classrooms. Principal is so uninvolved. Education poor. Pay tuition or move to the suburbs. Teacher called my child a racist name the other day. Cannot wait to leave.
