The Irish Oral History
Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area

The Crossroads Irish-American Festival directs The Irish Oral History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area.  This project is focused on the creation of a comprehensive archive featuring the life histories of all generations of Irish and Irish-American communities in this region.  In the initial phase of the project, we are reaching out to men and women who emigrated from Ireland during the 1930-1960s along with their Irish-American counterparts. 

Take a moment to view a sample from the archive, found below.  This is excerpt from a recording of John J. Moylan's life history.  This 9 minute video clip is taken from a longer (2 hour) interview that took place in John’s home on April 11, 2011.  The interview was conducted by Joan Cuddihy.
