The Memphis Irish Society, founded in 2014, is a rapidly growing organization dedicated to bringing together those in the Memphis community with Irish heritage. Through a variety of educational programs, events, and networking opportunities, the society has become an important hub for those interested in Irish culture and traditions.
One of the strengths of the Memphis Irish Society is its close ties to the area's Irish business owners. These individuals have been instrumental in helping to grow the society, providing financial support and other resources to help promote Irish culture in Memphis.
In addition to its business connections, the society has also established itself as a key player in the Memphis community. Its monthly meetings, this month's held at the Bog & Barley on April 20th, are a great way for members to network and connect with others who share their interests.
The society's commitment to education is another important aspect of its mission. Through classes, workshops, and other programs, members can learn about Irish history, language, music, and more. These educational opportunities not only enrich the lives of society members but also help to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of Irish culture in the wider community.
Recently, the Memphis Irish Society unveiled its new logo, designed by our very own Pipe Major Kenneth Hiner. The logo features intricate Celtic knot work that reflects the city of Memphis and its rich Irish heritage. The use of this traditional Irish design element in the logo is a nod to the importance of heritage and tradition to the society and its members.
Overall, the Memphis Irish Society is an organization that is making a real difference in the lives of those with Irish heritage in the Memphis area. Through its commitment to education, events, and networking, it has created a strong community of individuals who share a love of Irish culture and traditions. As the society continues to grow and evolve, it is sure to remain an important resource for those seeking to connect with their Irish roots and celebrate their heritage.
