Full Description: About The New York Irish Center

The New York Irish Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is truly an Irish place with a ilte for the whole community. It is accessible from every borough of New York, and from every part of the tri-state area. Through it, every Irish and Irish American, and every caller, can find help for a full life and fulfill their American Dream.

Our Story

The Center is the realization of a life long dream of many in the community who longed for a gathering place for the Irish community throughout the New York tri-state area. Four Irish-born American businessmen, bought the building in 2003 and held it until the Irish Center was in a position to purchase it at the original price less a large donation, in 2005. As real estate prices had skyrocketed around the developing Long Island City neighborhood between 2003 and 2005, this tremendous act of generosity stands as a testament to these four men's willingness to contribute to their city and reward everyone, including themselves with the permanence of the Irish Center. Father Colm Campbell was lured back from retirement to help launch the project. Now under Executive Director Paul Finnegan, we all believe that the building will serve as the cultural and social hub of New York's Irish community.

Our Vision

The vision for The New York Irish Center is real COMMUNITY. True community consists of:



A sense of solidarity. This happens when members identify with the Center as theirs and see the other members as people they can trust for giving and sharing.

A sense of significance. Through relationships formed in the Center people find that they not only have needs but have their own gifts and talents which they can give to the benefit of others members and society at large.

A sense of security. People discover that the Center is a place where people know that other members are always there for them.

We wish to serve as an easily identified Irish place, accessible from everywhere, through which every Irish and Irish-American person, and anyone who'd like to be with us, can find what they need for a full life in New York. We are an Information Center for existing resources and will provide what is not available to meet remaining needs when possible.
