Liverpool author and historian looks forward to mural

The author of the very popular book Liverpool's Irish Connection Michael Kelly sent a great message of support for the Liverpool Irish mural which is planned for next week.
Michael Kelly is a renowned local historian whose previous works include a major biography of Kitty Wilkinson, which is scheduled to reprint in the New Year. Michael Kelly has also written about other Liverpool Historical figures and events and gives talks on Liverpool History and contributes to many publications.

"It’s great that such a mural is being created in the city and your hard work is coming to fruition. I can't wait to see the work in progress. If your great project helps to build bridges in Ireland then its a great plus for Liverpool, All the people on the island of Ireland are wonderful people and they deserve their place in the sun."

"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."
