Caroleann Gallagher with her daughters, Ava and Ana, on Aranmore earlier this summer

McCann’s Irish Oatmeal, Mike Haggerty Buick/GMC/Volkswagen and Personal Injury Attorney Caroleann Gallagher present The Hibernian Radio Hour. This week we’re taking a little break from our First Responders theme and chatting instead to our wonderful sponsor and true Irish woman, Caroleann Gallagher. Caroleann is an Aranmore native and her husband is from Limerick. She has been practicing Personal Injury law for almost 20 years, with 11 of those years being based here in Chicago. We’re lucky to have her! Caroleann has just returned from a trip to the Emerald Isle and she has brought back many stories with her including one about an event in honor of ‘The Tunnel Tigers’ – a group of Irish men, her father included, who traveled all over the world to work as tunnel miners. As Caroleann says herself, “They were a force to be reckoned with!”. Caroleaan delves into her most recent and most successful case that awarded $3 million to the daughter of a victim of negligence. She also shares advice on how to choose the best nursing homes for your loved ones and reminds us that there is the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act that protects those living in Nursing Homes. Be sure to reach out to Caroleann if you or a loved one needs a reliable representative to help you with your Personal Injury case. Houli catches us up on this week’s obituaries and the news in the Irish American community.  Be sure to get your tickets for our upcoming Movie Hooley in September where we have a special 3-night ticket deal if you wish to attend all 3 movie showings. We’re also currently filming our second episode of ‘Our Irish Pub’ in pubs around the city so make sure to stop by one of the tapings and say Hi! We end the show this week with a fun trip to Houli-town and a few of Houli’s jokes to wave us into next week!
