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: Tracing Your Irish Roots
We are fortunate to have one of our most popular topics as our subject for our October meeting - genealogy. Our speaker Kathleen Magee will speak about how to begin tracing Irish family roots. Kathleen is the moderator of the popular Genealogy Tips and Tricks classes presented before the Irish Family History Forum meetings.
The venue for this meeting will be the Garden City Casino at 51 Cathedral Avenue on the corner of Sixth Street. The change in meeting place was caused by the repair of the elevator in the Garden City Library. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14. The meeting is free and open to the public. Click here for more details.
Our latest addition to the archives is "The Ogham Alphabet", written by John Walsh.
