Owen Connolly: The Making Of A Legacy 1820-2016
From 1820 to 2016 on PEI, the Owen Connolly Estate has funded approximately $3 million to help thousands of Island students of Irish Catholic heritage gain a higher education and achieve career success. This is the remarkable rags-to-riches story of the man who created this legacy, and the people who protected it.
Owen Connolly was a young immigrant lad escaping poverty and repression in his homeland of Ireland when he first stepper onto the docks in Charlottetown, PEI in 1839. Armed with a little more than determination and grit and a brilliant financial mind, over the next forty years he rose from being a dirt-poor farmer in Watervale to one of the wealthiest men on Prince Edward Island.
