The Irish Centre of Pittsburgh was developed in 1966 by Rev. Dr. Patrick
McCarthy, a resident at St. Paul's Cathedral and a professor of
International Affairs at Duquesne University.
The Irish Centre is
a place where Irish people in Pittsburgh can engage in cultural,
educational, social, and recreational activities. Most members are from
Irish ancestry and are interested in the promotion of Irish language,
dance, music, and customs.
At the Irish Centre, there are regular
open seisiúin held for any musicians who play Irish Traditional Music
on select Fridays. There also are weekly Irish language lessons for
beginners on Saturdays at 2:00pm. Please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about upcoming events.
The Irish Centre sponsors local Pittsburgh feiseanna events in conjunction with the local Irish Dance Schools.
