It was the first time I read of the donation by the Choctaw Indians to the Irish in the famine times.
Choctaw was filed away in my mental log with Billie Joe MacAllister. I am not sure I knew of it as a Native American tribe – let alone one who was so generous to Ireland.
The Long March is now on the ‘Books To Look Out For’ list. A trip to photograph the plaque at the Mansion House is also on a To Do list – but I am unlikely ever to get to Cleveland.
Heading east today, the sculpture is in place and visible from the by-pass.
I suspect that it has not yet been officially unveiled – if that is the appropriate word for something so big that no veil will cover. I hope that an information board is being prepared for that day to tell the story.
