Over 50 Years Of Celebrating Wisconsin's Irish Life and Pride

In 1960, The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin started a revolution in the life of Irish Wisconsin. The organization started small, but eventually became the wellspring of Irish life and culture for much of Milwaukee and the State of Wisconsin. Where there was a void in the cultural side of life, soon the Shamrock Club would fill it with parades, Irish dancing, an Irish festival, scholarships, and so much more.

The Shamrock Club is the oldest and largest Irish American membership organization in the State of Wisconsin. In 2016, we celebrate our 56th anniversary. It was founded on March 17, 1960, in Milwaukee. Currently, there are chapters in Milwaukee, South Central, Dane County, New London, Fox Cities, and Lafayette County. Statewide chapters hold monthly meetings, organize St. Patrick's Day parades, change the city of New London to New Dublin for the week, raise the flag over the State Capitol, as well as other Irish related activities. All of our chapters are involved in fund-raising and have donated thousands of dollars to numerous causes in the past five decades.

Membership includes our monthly publication, the Emerald Reflections. .

The February 2016 issue of the Reflections is online. Saint Valentine somehow made his way from the middle east to Ireland. How? Find out in Saint Valentine of Ireland
