THE BRIDGET H. MURRAY LIBRARY
The Irish America archive library is dedicated in loving memory to Bridget H. Murray, An Ordinary Woman who Lived an Extraordinary Life. In 1938 Bridie Collier made the unaccompanied trip from Corofin, County Galway to New York at the age of 13. In her lifetime Bridie accomplished many things but her greatest accomplishment was her family of nine children, 13 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren. The life lessons Bridie taught her family were profound and came from her own life history and will be forever carried on for generations.
