We will be celebrating on March 5, 2020 at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center. The Party starts at 6.30 pm.
Meet Peter Fleming, our 2020 Irishman of the Year; Maureen McGarry Konkol, Irish Rose; and Past President Kathy Donovan, and Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan, our Parade Marshals.
In 1960, The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin started a revolution in the life of Irish Wisconsin. The organization started small, but eventually became the wellspring of Irish life and culture for much of Milwaukee and the State of Wisconsin. Where there was a void in the cultural side of life, soon the Shamrock Club would fill it with parades, Irish dancing, an Irish festival, scholarships, and so much more.
The Shamrock Club is the oldest and largest Irish American membership organization in the State of Wisconsin. In 2020, we celebrate our 60th anniversary. It was founded on March 17, 1960, in Milwaukee.
Currently, there are chapters in Milwaukee, South Central, Dane County, New London, Fox Cities, and Lafayette County. Statewide chapters hold monthly meetings, organize St. Patrick's Day parades, change the city of New London to New Dublin for the week, raise the flag over the State Capitol, as well as other Irish related activities.
All of our chapters are involved in fund-raising and have donated thousands of dollars to numerous causes in the past five decades.
You can be a part of the history of Irish-America, and a part of building the future.
