Summarize the narrator's views of her Irish in-laws at the beginning and end of the story "Who's Irish?"
At the beginning of “Who’s Irish,” the narrator thinks that the Shea family is very different from her own, but she comes to see generational bonds as stronger than those of national heritage. She initially thinks that being the mother of four sons, like Bess Shea, is different from having one daughter, as she does. By the end, she and Bess are not only close friends but living together, and Bess has made her an “honorary Irish” person.
