Our mission is to promote positive associations to Ireland and matters Irish in the town of Amherst, Massachusetts by hosting events that explore aspects of Ireland's diaspora, culture, language and society.
In our commitment to equality, inclusion and diversity, we welcome all members of the Amherst community to our events.
We deliberately host our events at a beautiful community venue in downtown Amherst (Unitarian Social Room), not a pub, and serve complementary tea and scones at our "Tea & Tunes" segment after each presentation.
