About The Emerald Isle Club
Celebrating Over 60 Years!

The Emerald Isle Club, Inc. was founded in 1956 by a group of Irish friends who wanted to keep their Irish heritage alive and pass it down to future generations. Over the past 60+ years the Club has become well-known in the Maryland Irish Community for its members' dedication and support of traditional Irish music and dance, Irish charities, Irish ancestry and language, and for its strong monthly ceili program. The Emerald Isle Club is a non-sectarian and 501(c)3 charitable organization.

We extend an invitation to all people who are strongly committed to these same ideals to join our organization and work to strengthen the awareness of Irish heritage in the Baltimore and Maryland communities. Until we are able to get our links to our membership and ceili pages active, please use our email to contact the Club with questions or requests for membership at EICnewsletter@yahoo.com.

President's Letter - Fall 2017:

EIC President - Rick Herbig

Dia duit!

Welcome Home and welcome to our new home for the EIC 2017 ceili season. The site selection committee and the board did its "due diligence" and selected a fantastic venue with a professional dance floor. Starting on October 7, the members and guests of the EIC will be dancing at the Atlantic Ballroom in Towson, Maryland. J Patrick’s All-Stars will be providing the music for us. CEILI DETAILS.

EIC is participating in several Fall Events. These include:

In September Judy Kondner and I visited the Catholic Center to present Bishop Madden with a framed photograph of Cardinal Gibbons and Teddy Roosevelt. Bishop Madden celebrated his 50th Anniversary with the priesthood recently but he also tried to prevent Cardinal Gibbons High School from closing. St. Mary's Industrial School became incorporated into the Gibbons campus. Everyone knows that Babe Ruth attended the school. Al Jolson also benefitted from the brothers' influence while he was there. Bishop Madden was sensitive to the concerns of the students and their parents during this very painful closing of a West Baltimore institution and he justly deserves recognition for his efforts even though unsuccessful.

Also in September, members of the EIC will be visitors at Goucher College for its Fall into Goucher Dance Festival. It will be the third annual fundraiser for the Sophia Kurek Memorial Fund. The dance students asked for our return after last year's successful event with Marilyn Moore. EVENT DETAILS.

The EIC Memorial Mass will be held on Sunday, November 5 at the Mission Helpers in Towson, Maryland. EVENT DETAILS.

Rick Herbig,
President, Emerald Isle Club
