This lecture presented by Hilary Mhic Suibhne, explores the parallels and intersections in the lives of working-class Irish and urban work horses in 19th century New York City.

This talk will trace the role of horses in Irish culture and how the lives of the living four-legged machines of New York City and those of poor Irish immigrants, whose labor was central to the development of the city, revolved around one other.
