The New York Irish History Roundtable
Founded in 1984, the New York Irish History Roundtable promotes interest in and research on the 300-year history of people of Irish heritage in New York City. Its purpose is to provide opportunities to exchange information, and for members to learn from each other, about the complex relationship between the Irish and New York City since the colonial period. It sponsors lectures, field-trips, walking tours, special projects, graduate and undergraduate scholarships, museum exhibitions, genealogy workshops, newsletters and an annual journal, New York Irish History.
The New York Irish History Roundtable is a non-denominational, non-political, registered not-for-profit corporation. Its members include both professional and amateur historians and genealogists.
Funding for this Website
The funding for this website came from the Irish government Emigrant Support Programme, which is a tangible expression of the Government’s support of, commitment to, and interest in the global Irish community. Through this programme, the Government wants to fund projects that will have a clear and identifiable impact on supporting and building global Irish communities. The Irish Abroad Unit in the Department of Foreign Affairs manages and coordinates the programme in partnership with Ireland’s Embassies and Consulates abroad.
