Our Lady of the Rosary
The Battery Heritage Foundation is sponsoring a presentation on the contributions of Irish American New Yorkers to the 1916 Easter Rising which took place on April 24, 1916. One of the speakers will be the Irish historian, Maureen Murphy, who will talk about Rose McDermott, a sister to one of the patriots who took part in the Rising. Rose McDermott is also the founder of the Mission to Irish Immigrant Girls which was located in the Watson House at 7 State Street (now the parish office and rectory of Our Lady of the Rosary Church the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Shrine.)
