The Irish Cultural Society is a group of your friends and neighbors who want to know more about their Irish heritage. The group, non-political by its charter, endeavors to bring together people with the common goal of learning about our roots and supporting Irish culture and study.
At Our Next Meeting: Irish in Brooklyn
The December 14 meeting of the Irish Cultural Society will be devoted to an appreciation of five of the leaders of the Irish community in North Brooklyn. They include a founding member of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick; one of the first Irish-born Brooklyn police captains; a boxing champion; two “bosses” from the political structure of Brooklyn. Each of our speaker’s colorful people from Brooklyn’s history will delight us in their Irishness and their uniquely Brooklyn panache.. Click here for more details.
