Philadelphia Here I Come archiveTomorrow morning, Gar O'Donnell is leaving Ballybeg and the Ireland of his childhood. Leaving his father and the lads. Leaving Kate. There's a dream across the ocean, of Cadillacs, Coke floats and girls: a dream of America. On his last night in town a series of visitations, real and imagined, force Gar to confront the choices he's made and the promise of the future.
