The purpose of the Irish American Hall of Fame is to preserve the “story” of the Irish in America, by recognizing and honoring the outstanding contributions of Irish Americans to society in the areas of Arts & Humanities, Business & Industry, Public Service, Sports, Religion, Education and Science. Telling their story preserves our story. The Irish American Hall of Fame is a place where the shared story of the Irish in America will be available to all with an interest in the bond between Ireland and America.
