In the East, male Irish laborers were hired by Irish contractors to work on canals, railroads, streets, sewers and other construction projects, particularly in New York state and New England.
The Irish men also worked in these labor positions in the mid-west. They worked to construct towns where there had been none previously.
Kansas city was one such town, and eventually became an important cattle town and railroad center. Some moved to New England mill towns, such as HolyokeLowellTauntonBrocktonFall Riverand Milford, Massachusettswhere owners of textile mills welcomed the new low-wage workers.
They took the jobs previously held by Yankee women known as Lowell girls. The majority of them worked in mills, factories, and private households and were considered the bottommost group in the female job hierarchy, alongside African American women.
Workers considered mill work in cotton textiles and needle trades the least desirable because of the dangerous and unpleasant conditions. Factory work was primarily a worst-case scenario for widows or daughters of families already involved in the industry.
Also, the working conditions in well-off households were significantly better than those of factories or mills, and free room and board allowed domestic servants to save money or send it back to their families in Ireland.
Subject to their employers around the clock, Irish women cooked, cleaned, babysat and more. Because most servants lived in the home where they worked, they were separated from their communities.
Most of all, the American stigma on domestic work suggested that Irish women were failures who had "about the same intelligence as that of an old grey-headed negro. This was largely due to their ability to speak English when they arrived.
The Irish were able to rise quickly within the working world, unlike non-English speaking immigrants. In New York City was formed by consolidating its five boroughs. That created 20, new patronage jobs. New York invested heavily in large-scale public works. This produced thousands of unskilled and semi-skilled jobs in subways, street railways, waterworks, and port facilities.
Over half the Irish men employed by the city worked in utilities. Across all ethnic groups In New York City, municipal employment grew from 54, workers in toin Teachers[ edit ] Towards the end of the 19th century, schoolteaching became the most desirable occupation for the second generation of female Irish immigrants.
Irish schools prepared young single women to support themselves in a new country, which inspired them to instill the importance of education, college training, and a profession in their American-born daughters even more than in their sons.
Evidence from schools in New York City illustrate the upward trend of Irish women as teachers: Louis in Missouri, St. Paul in Minnesota, and Troy in New York. Additionally, the women who settled in these communities were often sent back to Ireland to recruit. This kind of religious lifestyle appealed to Irish female immigrants because they outnumbered their male counterparts and the Irish cultural tendency to postpone marriage often promoted gender separation and celibacy.
Furthermore, "the Catholic church, clergy, and women religious were highly respected in Ireland," making the sisterhoods particularly attractive to Irish immigrants. Irish Americans today are predominantly Catholic with a Protestant minority.
Irish leaders have been prominent in the Catholic Church in the United States for over years.

The Irish have been leaders in the Presbyterian and Methodist traditions, as well. It is common for Protestant Scotch-Irish Americans to call themselves "Irish", in particular because most immigration to colonial America was of Protestant settlers, so there was no need to distinguish themselves from Irish Catholics.
Orange Institution Between andthe majority of emigrants from Ireland to America were Protestants  who were described simply as "Irish". Some of the descendants of the colonial Irish Protestant settlers from Ulster began thereafter to redefine themselves as "Scotch Irish", to stress their historic origins, and distanced themselves from Irish Catholics;  others continued to call themselves Irish, especially in areas of the South which saw little Irish Catholic immigration.
However, participation in the Orange Institution was never as large in the United States as it was in Canada. Loyalists and Orangemen made up a minority of Irish Protestant immigrants to the United States during this period.On the Origins of New Forms of Life: Works cited (A-G).
