The Irish in Arizona

The Irish in Arizona is a multidisciplinary project underway at the McClelland Library. Through research, exhibitions, lectures, classes, and making materials available to the general public, the McClelland Library hopes to preserve and make available the history and legacy of the Irish in the state of Arizona. As the project progresses, more information will be available online and in person at the Irish Cultural Center & McClelland Library.
