The Irish experience has had a profound impact on Connecticut's past, and its narrative spans all periods of the state's history. Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans have been involved in the settlement, defense and development of our state since well before the Revolutionary War.
The goal of this site is to provide a moving history of the Irish Diaspora in Connecticut while encouraging visitors to explore over one hundred historical sites, events and organizations related to Connecticut's Irish population and its rich history.
This website is published and maintained by the Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society (CTIAHS).
It was made possible by a grant from the Government of Ireland, as well as support from the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office.
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.
