WASHINGTON, D.C. – An Irish American approached PolitickerNJ the other day and wondered aloud about what the Irish revolutionary James Connelly had done during his short time here in New Jersey with his family in 1905.

It’s the hundredth anniversary of Connelly’s execution by the British government, and PolitickerNJ could not resist the presence of Assemblyman Tom Giblin (D-34) in the Dubliner this evening to get the skinny on Connelly’s New Jersey activities.

“He organized workers at the Singer factory in Elizabeth,” said Giblin.

That’s good enough for us.
