The Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library are home to events and programs for visitors of all ages.

Our annual events have become traditions in the local Irish community, and our programs and special one time activities bring excitement to every calendar year.

Whether you are interested in learning the Irish Language, rowing a Currach, delving into Irish literature, playing in our Academy Band, or learning more about your family history, the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library will have an event or program available for everyone in the Arizona Irish Community.

About our Community:

Our Community is you! We come from all places and generations, backgrounds and interests. The census estimates 10% of our great state has an Irish relative in their family tree and that 12% have Celtic roots, and an even greater number have an interest in things that are Irish. If you fit any of those segments you are the Irish Community! Come and join us and celebrate all our community has to offer!
