The characters within this book, some of whom are pictured above, have earned the right to be remembered and recognised for their contribution to society. They, as well as others within this book must not be forgotten or erased from our histoy, on the contrary, their stories must be told and retold for generations to come. The lives of James Larkin, one of the true champions of the Trade Union movement on both sides of the Irish Sea and Robert Noonan, who wrote (what has been described as The Bible of The Working Class) The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists are also contained within Liverpool's Irish Connection.
Michael Kelly's writing is driven by love of his native Liverpool, which reaches back to his ancestral Ireland. In this collection of short biographies, Michael becomes the friend of his subjects, rather than a mere researcher. He writes of them because he is one of them, an Irish Liverpudlian in the grand old tradition.
