Frances Feeney Dalecio

Sons and daughters of Ireland are spread throughout the world. Chances are you have a bit of Irish in you, as I do myself. That is what led me on my quest to envision the lives of my Irish ancestors, before two brothers escaped to America in 1849. On my first visit to Ireland, I became fascinated with the beauty of the land. That led me to absorbing all the history I could put my mind to learning about Irish life. I experienced many of the characteristics and beliefs of my own family. After much reflecting, my imagination led me to:
The Lure of the Luck.


  • The Lure of the Luck


    In a land of story tellers, legends and beliefs carried down through generations, so it was in Ireland in 1800 for Tom Forde, who carried the spirit of his grandfather's stories as the Irish struggled to maintain their identity and live in community with all their pleasures and hardships.
