New York

Country of Origin: Ireland

Liam came to America from Ireland at age 19 for a better life and more opportunities. Liam settled in Bloomingburg, New York, but soon moved to Middletown, New York, because he found a large Irish population there. Liam says, ''There are many differences between America and Ireland. They range from social behavior to work opportunities.'' Right now Liam is the superintendent of an apartment complex and has a landscaping business. He also fixes up houses and sells them for profit. He has a wife named Betsy and a daughter named Maggie. Liam loves America and I hope most immigrants do too.
