In the spring of 2013, the Connecticut Irish American Historical Society (CTIAHS) applied for, and received, a grant from the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office for the preparation of a statewide Historic Resources Inventory documenting the state's Irish heritage.
This report contains the results of the study, prepared between April 2013 and June 2015, and includes documentation over 100 structures, sites, events, and organizations related to Connecticut's Irish population and its history.
The expectation was that this survey would enrich the extensive records maintained by the CTIAHS, as well as supplement the body of information previously compiled by the organization and other entities interested in the history of the Irish experience in Connecticut.

The Irish experience has had a profound impact on Connecticut's past, and its narrative spans all periods of the state's history and touches every one of its eight counties and 169 towns.
