Decades of Dreams Come True for Cincinnati Irish

After many years and many attempts to put together a home for the Irish there is success; The Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati is now is a reality!! Located at 3905 Eastern Avenue in the Columbia Tusculum area of Greater Cincinnati, the Irish Heritage Center was founded in late 2009!!

Based on the successful Irish American Heritage Center in Chicago, the Irish Heritage Center of Cincinnati is run by a team of many volunteers. They have completed innumerable projects to clean up and fix up the 44 thousand square foot building purchased from the Cincinnati School Board in 2009. Tom Boyle, former President of the Chicago Irish American Heritage Center has kindly mentored the Cincinnati Managing Director Kent Covey and member Maureen A. Kennedy who is also the Irish American Theater's Artistic Director. Trips to Chicago, emails, & phone calls help to keep the team enthusiastic and moving ahead on the correct track.

Help is needed in the form of donations of; time, equipment, supplies, and funding. Any contribution, no matter how small, will help. At this critical juncture, there is a need for so many things. A little help from a lot of people will surely guarantee the project's success. The website is up and running, AND You are here!!

You can also contact The Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati by calling; 513-533-0100 or 513-262-9932, OR : to talk to the Theater Company Artistic Director, call 513-225-6915.

Come visit with us awhile at the Irish Heritage Center and awaken the Irish within you.
