Among the first students admitted to the program in the fall of 2007 was Joe Long, the son of Irish immigrants who came to New York from Arklow, Co. Wicklow in the 1920s. Joe grew up near a neighborhood made famous by the classic film On the Waterfront. A senior sales and management director with United Technologies Group, Joe already had a lifelong passion for the study of Ireland from his undergraduate days

A senior sales and management director with United Technologies Group, Joe already had a lifelong passion for the study of Ireland from his undergraduate days in Manhattan College. He took a scenic route through the M.A. program, mainly due to the pressures of his busy job, but he graduated in 2012, having completed a thesis based on oral histories with the Irish in Chelsea and Greenwich Village that was later published in the annual journal New York Irish History.  Joe is still pursuing that interest by working on a documentary film and he generously returns to the classroom to share his experiences with our undergraduate students.
