Abstract: As the most prominent member of a family of four generations of Irish musicians in France, Jospeh O'Kelly was part of the Irish community in 19th-century France. However, despite the presence of an active network of eminent musicians and prominent Irish exiles during his lifetime, and although he produced a polific oeuvre of publishedcompositions and received a number of public honours, his name was quickly forgotten after his death; Today, his place in the histories of France or Irish music is less that prominent. Yet, the study of his music through press coverage of his performances reveals fascinating insights into a Franco-Irish biography, his astonishing perseverance in opera, his successes and failures, and possible reasons for his early neglect
