Welcome to the Irish Society of Kentuckiana!
The Irish Society of Kentuckiana, a 501(c)(3), has been present in the Greater Louisville area for over 33 years. Formerly known as “The Sons and Daughters of Erin”, we became the “Irish Society of Kentuckiana, Inc.” on the 17th of May, 2002.
The Irish Society of Kentuckiana was established to promote Irish Heritage, Culture and Friendship. It is a nonprofit organization, enriching the cultural lives of members of the Kentuckiana area. The Society offers exposure to Irish heritage, and preserves, enhances and fosters pride in our Irish ancestry.
In addition to many local and regional activities that it sponsors, the society collaborates with other Irish groups and has national and global affiliations with other Irish organizations.
The Irish Society of Kentuckiana, Inc. is a non-sectarian organization. There is no religious affiliation.
We invite you to be a part of us!
If you like the sound of an Irish fiddle, enjoy watching Irish dancers, curious about your family’s Irish ancestry, or want to explore the Irish culture, then the Irish Society of Kentuckiana is for you. There are no age limits, and the Society is accessible to people of all nationalities.
