Welcome to the Irish Cultural Center

The Irish Cultural Center at Elms College is devoted to keeping the Irish arts alive. We work to preserve, share, and promote the cultural heritage of the Irish people, so that future generations of Irish and Irish Americans will have the opportunity to appreciate their rich legacy.

The Irish Cultural Center is located in the Alumnae Library at Elms College in Chicopee, MA. Contact us at 413-265-2537  |  irishcenter@elms.edu
