Author, Reviewer

David K. McDonnell is an Irish-American with a passion for both Irish and American history and is the author of two books – ClanDonnell: A Storied History of Ireland and Buy The Horse A Guinness (& Other Wee Tales of Ireland), and many other stories.

He attended the University of Michigan and practiced law in Detroit for over thirty years.  He represented many entrepreneurs along with a number of nonprofit organizations, helping them define their mission and design operations and implement programs to achieve that mission. He did this sometimes as an attorney and sometimes as a volunteer.

His passion (next in importance to my family and my law practice) is history. “I’ve always been fascinated by how people used to live, what they used to do, and how that shaped the world that followed.”
