The story of the Irish in America is one that is the subject of great research, scholarship and of course, myth and legend. We hope, in these few pages, to give you a small taste of that story. And, we certainly do not expect to be the final word on a story that will continue.
The vision statement of the Irish American Hall of Fame says it best:
“The Irish American Hall of Fame will preserve and promote the “story” of Irish culture by recognizing the contributions of individuals to the Irish-American experience. Telling their story preserves our story. The Irish American Hall of Fame will be a place where the shared story of the Irish in America will be available to all with an interest in the bond between Ireland and America.”
Check back with us often. We will update these pages with more information and articles on the Irish in America and we look forward to sharing the story of those elected to the Irish American Hall of Fame.
