We are happy to announce a new addition to the Irish Legends website. Dorothy V. Corson has given us permission to provide a link to her new website, The Spirit of Notre Dame:  Its History, Legends and Lore
 
This website contains human interest stories that are meticulously researched and wonderfully written. They are unique and fascinating, and many contain new and compelling pieces of history that have never been fully investigated before. I must especially recommend "Father Corby’s Favor Granted" which inspired the creation of Notre Dame's Grotto.  What that favor was has remained a mystery for over 100 years
 
The Spirit of Notre Dame:  Its History, Legends and Lore explores the courage, devotion and determination that has been a constant theme in the history of the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Starting with the founding "pioneer spirit and fortitude" of Father Edward Sorin and his band of seven Brothers, and reflected in Father Corby’s heroics at Gettysburg, this spirit was exemplified in the teams and student body of the Rockne era, and by the brilliance and leadership of Father Hesburgh into the modern era.
 
As Dorothy Corson beckons in her The Spirit of Notre Dame Introduction:  "Come join me on that "Trail of Memories . . . ."
