Irish County Societies Collection AIA.003
Ireland's thirty-two counties have a long history of New York City-based fraternal, social, and benevolent associations. This project makes over 15,000 pages from the minute books of eight Irish county societies, spanning 1903-1996, available to scholars via links in the finding aid to the Irish Counties Societies Collection (AIA.003) in the Archives of Irish America. The digitization was made possible by a generous grant from Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs. The Archives of Irish America is a repository of research materials that assists students, faculty and visiting scholars in understanding the Irish migration experience and the distillation of American Irish ethnicity over time. It was established in 1997 as part of New York University’s Division of Libraries, with the support of Glucksman Ireland House, NYU's Center for Irish and Irish American Studies.
