…only requirement is a time machine.
Of those who lived in Joplin, the city claimed not a few number of sons of Ireland. Some of the city’s wealthiest citizens, such as Patrick Murphy and Thomas Connor, were the children of Irish immigrants or born in Ireland. In a tip o’ the hat to Joplin’s Irish, presented below is a menu ad for the Connor Hotel’s restaurant. The Connor, named after Thomas Connor, was once the architectural centerpiece of Joplin’s downtown. Not bad for a true son of Ireland.
