About The Irish Center...

About Tom The Irish Center of Southern California, Inc. promotes Irish culture and supports our local Irish and Irish-American community. The primary aim of the Center is to acquire a multi-purpose facility including a theater, library, social hall, museum and meeting rooms. The facility will be used for lectures, concerts, socials, plays and classes in Irish music, language and dance. The Center hopes that the facility will provide a physical "center" for our community.

In addition to providing a facility, the Center will sponsor and promote activities focusing on the strong bonds between Ireland and Southern California. The Center will serve our community by sponsoring activities emphasizing education and enjoyment and by supporting the efforts of other local groups. The Center has promoted a deeper understanding of Irish events. Through it's emergency assistance fund the Center has helped individuals in our community by providing modest amounts of financial assistance to those in urgent need.

The Center has no paid staff, but is served by numerous dedicated volunteers. In this way, the Center maximizes the value of donations. The Center is and will remain non-partisan and non-political. Funds raised by the Center will remain in Southern California for the benefit of our community.

The Center's success depends on the financial support of individuals in our community. We invite and encourage you to participate in the Center's mission. Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The Center is still looking for available sites for a building. Options include buying or leasing an existing structure or vacant land. While the Center will ideally be in a central location, the Center is interested in any suitable property in Orange County or Los Angeles County.
