Our Mission
 

To promote an appreciation of Irish culture through social, educational, literary, and artistic activities, 

 

To serve as a social support group for Irish and Irish-Americans, and for anyone with an interest in Irish culture, 

 

To facilitate the assimilation of Irish immigrants into American society without letting them lose sight of their heritage and cultural identity.

 

To contribute to the cultural fabric of Charlotte and surrounding communities through Irish cultural activities.

While we like to have fun, we also provide support for various charities in the Greater Charlotte region. There is a strong desire on the part of our membership to give back to the community.

 

In 2021, we fundraised for: 

  • Families Forward Charlotte

  • Darkness into Light 

  • OneBlood
